Ed, Crystal, Coda and I went for a walk Saturday morning, starting from Pine Knob along the fire road. There were occasional gusts of wind that caused us to wonder if that was a wise decision. When we came across a downed tree in the path I thanked my lucky stars that we weren't standing there when it blew over!
We were searching for a way to come out of the fire road along Mineral Road. We ended up possibly trespassing on some private property, and never really finding what we were looking for. I felt like Henry Hudson in search of the Northwest passage. Ed concluded, "You can't get there from here!"
We'll have to return another time and approach it from another direction!
