Dolly Sods Wilderness Area, West Virginia, Jan 2007

The Dolly Sods Wilderness in the Monongahela National Forest in WV is a place to be reckoned with during the winter… and Bryan and I certainly experienced a little bit of reckoning the weekend of Jan 27-28, 2007. Temps in the teens, wind chill bringing it down to possibly sub-zero, hiking through snow up to a foot deep and snowdrifts up to our waists at times, fresh snow showers, exposed ridges with winds whipping across the wilderness… an exulting experience.
