The call of the open road is upon me, though I sit here in front of the keyboard, editing, editing, and dreaming of faraway heights such as these along the crest of the Allegheny Front at Dolly Sods, West Virginia.
up high, off the rocky point trail in the dolly sods wilderness is this wonderful old pine plantation. it is a perfect place to camp on pine duff, and a short walk out to the rocky overlook. every year, as fall approaches, i yearn just a little bit for the eastern mountains and their remarkable color display. this place makes it into those yearnings quite often.
