    This weekend I went for a hike on part of the North Fork Mountain Trail. Started at 1,100 feet and went up to 3,400+ feet. Did almost 12 miles. Once on top of the ridge, the trail follows the cliff with many overlooks.
    It rained off and on, but still had good views.

    Seneca Rocks was close by, so made a quick stop.

    The trail, just keeps going up and up.

    The far ridge is Dolly Sods, where I go hiking often, and will be driving through on my way back.

    Getting late and the winds really started picking up. Ready to storm again.

    Thank you, it is pretty neat. You just start the app and it tracks you and does the video and data itself.
