    Yep. I just have to grab my sync cable from the office tomorrow, and I'll get it loaded up! You got some great photos. The one of WV and Bonaparte is really good.

    i am going to frame the group shot. the Dolly Sods Wilderness area - austere and abundant. i was transformed by beauty and camaraderie. each individual was a self-contained unit that sustained and maintained the group. i would backpack with you all again in a heartbeat. my brothers and sisters - my like-minded people. i took way too many pics but wanted to stay in the moment forever. deepest gratitude, hammock forum friends.

    Looking forward to your Rohrbaugh Plains report, Hickery. I haven't tried that trail yet. I like your idea of a solo post-hike; may try to make a practice of that myself.

    (I had to look up the spelling on that one. DS is funny about names - trail sign at one end said "Fisher Spring Run" and sign at the other end of the same trail said "Fischer Spring Run". "Breathed" is two syllables. "Dolly" used to be "Dahle". Etc.)

    that looked like a really nice trip, did anyone take a gps and log the trip. it would be helpful for planning a trip. if you do not want to post it, would it be possible to PM me with it?

    what were your temperatures like?

    thank you,

    Patrick, Crackedup posted links to gps data for all but Saturday. I think USMCStang will have the rest. Nighttime lows were in the low 30s the first few days, then warmed up a bit. Here's the best site for Dolly Sods weather, but watch it closely because it changes fast.

    OK guys, here's the trip log. A few of the data points were weird, saying we went slightly faster than 9 MPH (maybe I fell down a cliff, and forgot, lol).

    September 17th, 2011

    If anyone wants the raw gpx data, let me know, and I'll email it to you. The forum won't let me attach gpx or kmz data. I put the kmz into google earth, and it looks awesome with the 3D terrain. The gpx is only 258 K. I can send the waypoint for the Waterfall we stopped at as well.

    Thanks Mike. Having the data is of great interest to an info addict like me.
