Pictures From Dolly Sods, West Virginia

In late October of 2019 I did a great camping trip with a friend in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, a place called Dolly Sods, located in the Monongahela National Forest. We did the trails in the southern part of the park, starting at Red Creek. Went a bit "off trail" early on during the trip as we kept exploring the campsites, of which there are many! First night we camped by the river, near where we had to cross the next monring to get on the Big Stonecoal trail. It was great sleeping by the river, and the stars were beautiful at night. Next morning we crossed the river, during which the current took one of my flip flops away :( Then we hiked all the way to the top, left our backpackss and went to explore the beautiful lookouts by Lion's Head. We had the place all to ourselves and relaxed for a bit. Heading back we saw some nice waterfalls and ended up at another beautiful campsite by a smaller creek, with a sandy beach. We decided to stay here for the night and then head down along the Little Stonecoal trail back to the Red Creek trail. It was a great loop with a fair bit of elevation (~300m). This is a really nice place worth exploring, with tons of amazing campsites!
