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?

Finally cooled down enough for an overnighter at the gorge. 

Found a nice overlook
 


A rock with carvings on it



Close up



a tunnel/passage



Visited several false arches









Found a small window



And an arch



Keeping an eye on the weather, hope to be gorging soon.

Very nice.  Do you know if those are old petroglyphs or of a more modern variety?  The turkey and deer tracks look consistent with older native American petroglyphs, but I'm no expert.

I have no idea, but would be cool if they were petroglyphs.  The area wasn't marked an archeological site.  This was in the same shelter.

those are authentic, and actually, I'd like to ask if I can use them in my research paper (I of course cite you, and will direct people to this thread).

The awen symbol shown is the centerpiece to my paper, as it is mislabeled in "Rock Art of KY" as a turkey foot. But actually it's an astronomical record.

If you pm me the coords, I can ask the Office of State Archaeology if that is a known site or not. I was just on the phone with Christina yesterday... we have all sorts of new stuff to verify.

I love finding salamanders. My favorite are the black and gold ones.
