That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Tarr Ridge
« on: February 18, 2017, 07:33:37 AM »

A couple of hunting trips out Tarr Ridge. 

Tarr Ridge cliff line


A couple of pillarettes




A nifty skylight, but couldn’t find a path up to the top.  :(


Found some windows
The Hillside Window




Skylight window


Football Tube Window


Multiplex Windows has several connected openings filled with debris (but with time and erosion could become a large arch)


Not gonna make it back today, but we'll be gorging in the morning!!  :)

Interesting cliff-lines and arches. Love that skylight photo, would have been interesting to scramble up that!

Awesome pictures!  Does anyone know if the arch you're standing on at the falcon boxes is named?  I dropped down there a couple years ago and got some good pictures although you can't get far enough back from it to get it all in one frame.

Copper is correct the falcon box is in Dunkan Arch. 

Haven't made it around to Rango yet...probably the next trip.

Beautiful windows! I had no idea Tarr Ridge had so many features. Will definitely have to make a trip there during my next visit.

Thanks for sharing some of those wonderful shots, Bazinga!

Thanks.  Love following the less visited clifflines (especially since Luna-pup eats everything :-[ ).

"Directions to Tarr Ridge
USFS
This wall is in property owned by USFS. Be respectful. After a 2.0 mile drive past Nada Tunnel on KY 77, you will cross Red River on the steel bridge. Just past the bridge on the left is a gravel road variously labeled as Forest Service Road 23 or County Road 1067. Park at a pulloff on the right near the intersection and hike northeast and uphill to a prominent buttress that is sometimes visible from the road just before the steel bridge."

found this, might be useful?

Directions to Tarr Ridge...

Yes, but depends on what area of Tarr Ridge you wish to visit.

I was just through that area and as mentioned coming from the Slade exit, right after crossing the steel bridge on Nada Tunnel Rd 77, there is prominent signage at the intersection of Forest Service Road 23/North Folk Rd to "Indian Creek" on the gravel road. If you see that sign, then you are heading in the right direction and will be on the West Side of Tarr Ridge.

However, if you continue East on Nada Tunnel Rd 77, at the next intersection a left turn will continue Nada Tunnel 77, or Tarr Ridge Rd (Going straight turns into 715 Sky Bridge). If you take that left turn staying on 77, use the first pull-off area on the right side of the road. Tarr Ridge Trail, Duncan-Wolfpen Arch, and other features will be to the East.

Tarr Ridge trail can be accessed further up that road, but those details should be fairly public and not too hard to locate.

Well crap, deleted some pics, now they are missing in this post.   >:(  (sometimes my brain just doesn't work correctly!!)  I'll have to repost the pics later.  :P

Anyways a few more trips out Tarr Ridge. 

Dunkan Branch Overlook















Wildflower buds








Tarr West Overlooks














Ravens Rock




Found some rock climber at the end and Luna pup got some lovins too!!



Since we still had some daylight, we found a cliffline to follow.



Hiking again this weekend!  :)
