Dolly Sods

Getting up to, and down from, Dolly Sods in West Virginia is a slow rough trip over a very rocky road.  The roads are steep and the rains wash out the soil leaving the rocks protruding so that your vehicle tires have to keep running over rough rocks.  It makes for a very bumpy ride.  The trip had me missing my older four wheel raised pickup truck with ten-inch clearance and sturdier tires.  Fortunately we didn’t have any trouble but when I stopped on top near a pickup truck, the truck driver asked me if I had any wire or a metal coat hanger.  I didn’t.  His tail pipe had vibrated loose, or was knocked loose, and was dragging the ground and he needed to tie it up.
