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

Bison way connector old path?
« on: January 27, 2018, 02:26:48 AM »

Just wondering where the old Bison way connector used to go, it looks like it went along klaber brach years ago to get to Sheltowee instead of going the path it does now. A guy was telling me about how the trail has changed since he's been to the gorge and was lamenting about all the swimming holes it bypasses now. looks like I have to take a venture up Gladie creek.

There is a wash/trail that connects down to said branch from sheltowee. I use it to get way back into cliffty, a little easier on the old knees.

Yes, I believe it used to follow along the ridges of Sargent, Klaber, and Hale Branches always running perpendicular to Gladie. It connected further North on the Sheltowee, instead of the short run that it is now. There are some interesting features in those areas. Massive old tree growth back in those branches that were missed in the logging days. Holds some of the largest Tulip, Hemlock and Pine trees in DBNF.
