Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

Another overnighter at the gorge hiking out Hatton Ridge

Hatton Ridge road past the gate


Beautiful wildflowers






Grass seed


And a tree blossom


Set my pack about a foot from this big fellow (Timber rattler?).


The freaky part was Luna on the other side of the log & her wanting to check out what I was photographing (nosey butt)

Came across this building, guessing it was a cellar because of all the jars scattered about down the hill.




Past a forest-made bench on the way to Blackburn rock


Blackburn Rock


Blackburn Overlook (awesome by the way)






A small cliff line by Batton Arch

Wonderful weather predicted this weekend and another trip Saturday!!  :)

Snake! No thank you. :) Great pictures! Would you mind sharing how to get to Batton Arch (pm of course!)? Never seen that one before, looks intriguing.

Love the photos, even the old building. I'm assuming it's right along the Hatton Ridge Trail. Suppose it was used as an old shine still site? If so, great find!
