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?

Water for Days
« on: February 23, 2018, 10:56:13 PM »

Everything is a waterfall in the Red right now, simply beautiful. There's so much water everywhere. I spent this past Sunday wondering around in the woods, mostly off trail and it was a great time.

Here's a video highlight of the trip.

I never knew the term "Liesegang Rings" so I learned something today, thanks.

that looks like a ton of water coming off Eagle Point.

Looks like a good day, thanks for the report

I remember a couple years ago kayaking the upper section the same day as a rain and there were so many waterfalls. It was truly wonderful and really felt like a "National Wild River" designation was warranted. Even found a rare lingzhi mushroom on a tree, a sure sign of a healthy forest.

I was in Spaas Creek Valley on Saturday. The creek was a good foot higher on the way back. The difference between shin deep and hip deep. The current was also increased.

The valley did remind me a lot of the Smokys, with every crevice flowing with amazing flow.

The mud pits were muddy. and deeper. It's a valley I love and hate. Especially when the mud tries to steal my boots.

I assume you mean the upper Red?  I keep looking for more information on that before I go this spring.
