Visiting our friends in West Virginia today, we went on our customary Jeep outing. Since[singlepic id=84 w=320 h=240 float=right] we had to be back in NC Sunday night, we set out on familiar trails to the “Wagon Wheel” which is an ATV camp north of Bramwell, WV. We found a trail last winter and wanted to find out where it went, figuring the water would be low enough to get through. This is the same trail that Sara (my Jeep) went swimming in last winter. Water was literally washing over the hood before I backed it out and deemed the hole too dip to ford. There was still plenty of water on the trail, but if it was too deep to ford, we found a way around it. Following the creek through the mountains, we didn’t get any steep hill climbs, but the mud and rocks were abundant. The creek crossings did a good job of washing the mud off our tires and underneath the Jeeps.[singlepic id=83 w=320 h=240 float=left]We started out leaving the hard top right past Pinnacle Rock state park and found our way back to civilization just outside of Northfork, WV. We then drove into Princeton for supper, and finally home. All in all, it was a good time.
