Please feel free to post your own recent outdoor outings.
>>2133860I found this under a bridge.
>>2133869Where was this bridge? What do you think it might have been used for? What was on the other side?
>>2133869Ah yes, that's called water, sometimes bridges go over that :-)
>>2133939sometimes the water is troubled, tooStill, I like learning the history of stonework and masonry; knowing what is was used for.
>>2133860why are you creating another spam thread when mods already deleted your previous one?There's already a recent outings thread dc faggot >>2116229
>>2133860Beautiful landscape, you could probably find HIM there
>>2134041>why are you creating another spam thread when mods already deleted your previous one?spammers just like to spam, sometimes it be that way
>rdb lakeMah nigga
>>2134080Do you know if you can walk out to the intake tower (doubt it but it kinda looks like it) or what the trails near the lake are like? Just curious.
>>2134083I‘ve only been once while driving through the area sadly, just loved that view. The tower looked very off limits for what that‘s worth and it seems like you‘d have to come from somewhere other than Justice to get to the lake.
>>2134087Ah ok I was just driving through as well. Are you from West Virginia?
>>2134088no I'm from Northern Virginia, Alexandria
>>2134088Do you know any places around the DC beltway area that I can go to?
Went kayaking out of town and got heckled by these assholes
recently moved to california, I still haven’t seen the crowds everyone whines about? Passed one person over 12 miles of trail.
>>2134191Stole one of their dead friend's head
>>2134191they were waiting to hear you play a brass instrument
>>2134196There was a dead cow floating nearby. I kinda want to go back and drag it to an island to collect the skeleton later.
>>2134191nice, digging the low banks there. theyve dyked up the sides of the rivers here so you cant see shiett
>>2134252There really isn't any point to dyke the rivers around here unless you have a major city. It'll flood regardless of what you do and crop insurance will cover the loss.
>>2134458That's actually the view of the Three Apostles from Huron
>>2134458>>2134194>conifer countrygross, you're not allowed in this thread
>>2134458All those pine trees look lovely, the way they all reach for the stars the same way, it looks fuzzy and pleasant :)
I like stumbling about and then getting back on track and following the circles :)
>>2134841>>conifer countryYes. The trees point to the heavens. Maybe you should take the hint
>>2135080>emerson stover scenic overlookKnow who else has a scenic overlook?
>>2135163>not even a trail>Lake Stephens Overlook>you pull up in a car, snap a pic then get back in the carWell at least this isn't the Appalachian hiking thread, LARPERS should to be contained in this one
>>2135185I mean it is still outdoors. It is called /out/, not /hike/...Also it had nice benches overlooking the water where we had lunch. There was also a swimming beach I think cuz we heard lots of kids making noise. They must be already out of school!
The high peaks region of the Adirondacks 1/4
>>21352754/4 bonus schizo wagon at trail head. Driver was a nice guy though.
>>2135276How much of a mind virus sufferer do you have to be to put shit like this on your truck? Or anything you own, for the matter.
>>2135285I like to think it was an elaborate troll. There were a bunch of kids over from Burlington absolutely seething over it.
>>2135276incredibly based>>2135285lighten up buttercup
>>2135285It's like 50% of boomers that are like this lol
>>2135185that's because DC homo is obese, and his dad has bone spurs or some kind of medical condition where he can't walk more than 1/2 milethe irony is DC faggot gets mad every time someone tells him to go to shenandoah national park. I originally though he can't afford the $20 entrance fee or something, but with his level of terminal autism I'm surprised he doesn't have the national parks disability pass
>>2135611>photo taken from R.D. Bailey Lake Visitor Center>image was the OP for his "Appalachian HIKING General"LARP
>>2135751where is dat?are they friendly to gay people from the DC suburbs?and are there any airbnbs with ice cold water nearby?
This ones going to grow up to be a BIG BEAUTIFUL TREE :D
I'd like to check out the Appalachians some day but for now I'm in Oregon. This is recent from the shore of Davis Lake. That might be Maiden Peak.
>>2135858I spent a little time living in Bend, Oregon. If you ever get the chance go to Tumalo Falls and then keep heading upstream past the falls along north fork tumalo creek. I dunno if it is different now, but when I was there trail was really only passable July-early October maybe due to TONS of snow. Multiple waterfalls very pretty:https://www.alltrails.com/explore/trail/us/oregon/tumalo-creek-falls-via-north-fork-trail-242
>>2135759For the most part people dont care about others everyone keeps to themselves and nobody snitches on their neighbors, place is Fort Valley and there is some good hotels in the nearby towns but nothing in the valley itself. Its surprisingly isolated.
>>2135933Oh I did some hikes in fort valley va last fall. Elizabeth furnace, storybook trail, woodstock towerits kinda cool cuz u can drive on a dirt road along the ridgeline for a pretty long way
I found the trail leading up to the fire tower at Panther State Forest on one end of the group campground.Decided against hiking it because skies were overcast and rain was forecast soon. There are actually two ways to get there, there is also a longer route leading from near the state forest offices along a gated fire road.
Old water pipe I think leading up the side of the mountain for fire fighting purposes. Up the mountain is the fire tower so I guess this might have allowed the fire tower to fight fires from there at one point.
did a bit of field recording out in Yengo
>>2135899Where is that? Looks like Nevada or California.
>>2136323good eye. it's death valley. cali end
HE is still waiting for you
just got back last night. the trip ended a friendship. im going camping alone from now on. nice views though.
>>2136557>the trip ended a friendshipstory?
>>2136770Tried to suck his cock once we were both in the tent for the night. He was into it, but the post nut shame was too much to handle I guess
>>2136828wait seriously?did you swallow?did he know ur gay?
HE is waiting
>>2136770that other guy was a larp. basically the Friend I went with had a super negative attitude the entire trip, bitching about anything that could be bitched about. (My feet are wet, it's too hard to hike up the sand, I wish we had and hamburger meat but the stores are all closed, there's a couple mosquitoes here), a general lack of interest in anything, and on the fourth day of the trip (the first two day being mostly driving to the camp site), he got super sunburned because he doesn't understand how to use sunscreen. he was in so much pain apparently that he decided he was not only unable to hike, but also not able to stay at the campsite or anywhere near, and needed to go home immediately. I found out about this, by waking up at 6:30 to all of my gear taken out of the car, and him telling me that he has to leave now, and no we can't stay another day, and if I want to stay any longer I could rent a car. but since we're over a thousand miles from home, thatll cost me at least $1200. he had no remorse or anything. it was perfectly logical to him. so we left after spending two and a half days hiking, and ultimately three days driving, and me getting back home at three in the morning. >pic related was a waterfall that took 30 mins to hike to, that he didn't feel like walking to after him saying he wants to see a waterfall on day one. his reaction to me showing him the pic, was a resounding, "nice".
>>2136902To be fair there's a lot of planning that goes into trips in terms of making sure you have adequate food and supplies and a lot of people don't plan ahead.
>>2136908we had way more supplies than we needed. way more. we had sunscreen with us all the time. he just didn't give a shit. like, his fucking reason for coming in the first place was that he figures the encomy is going to collapse in a few years and because of that he won't be able to travel at all.
>>2136902Also just as a suggestion we normally travel 200-400 miles away for our trips. Finding local/regional destinations can often be just as satisfying without spending days in a car. I'm sorry that happened but the key I guess is to learn from your experience. >>2136913I mean it sounds like you bit off more than you could chew given his interests and ability level. I'm not defending him, but you have to adapt to other people. I try to think up 4-5 possible hikes/scenic things per day and offer them as choices. waterfall, overlook, lake, swamp, creek hike, swimming hole, mix it up.
>>2136916we did mix it up and nothing we did was hard. first hike was maybe 8 mi round trip to snow topped mountains above the tree line, not that steep but a little wet because of all the melting snow. and that was it for the first day. just that one hike. second day was just hiking up some dunes and a 30 minute detour to this waterfall hours later. he just got sunburned and that killed all of his enthusiasm to do anything. he didn't even try to get over it. it was the first time he's ever been to the mountains, and all it took was some sunburn for him to not be interested anymore. he was really enthusiastic the weeks leading up to it and the drive there and when we got there so everything seemed fine. Its just incredible how little it took for him to not care anymore. I could count the times on one hand where he seemed excited about something.
>>21369268 mi is a lot for some people...especially considering elevation gain and terrain
>>2136928I was letting him go to his own pace, and checking up on him and every once in awhile, asking if he was okay, if he wants to go back, everything. we got to the top and he wanted to keep going. there was just too much snow. we got back and he said he wasn't tired or sore or anything he could totally handle it. I was very careful not to push this guy. I planned our hikes starting with the easiest going to the harder to ones.
>>2136931>there was just too much snowsounds like he was scared to speak up and you pushed him way too hard and he was upset over it its june you can find lots of places to hike that are not snowed in by now>he said he wasn't tired or sore or anythingyeah so he was afraid to say anything and you pushed him too hard
>8 mi in the snow was the easiest hikeyeah I would have driven home too
>>2136933why you making all these assumptions? you don't know this guy at all. this guy was speaking up constantly about all the stuff he actually had problems with.I was the one who said there was too much snow. he wanted to keep going through it he was pushing harder than me to go through this stuff. I said it was a bad idea because I've done this before.
>>2136935what board am I on?
>>2136935also there was only snow at the top. and we stopped just when we hit snow. also it's 8 mi round trip. so 4 miles there 4 mi back. The snow is at the 4 mile point.
>>2136942ok well I hope your next trip goes better
>watching geese grow up at my local parkaesthetic.
I think HE is still waiting
Me at ramona falls near mt hood in oregon.
>>2137821where is datis it a paved trail in appalachia?my dad has bone spurs so he can only walk on paved trailsbonus points if it is listed in alltrails pls
>>2137821this is maryland btw. not telling you where dc nigger
>>2137823yes this listed on all trails but i post fake reviews about agressive dogs, mud, and overgrowth of thornbushes
>>2134194The crowds are usually only at the popular places and only at the trailhead. Usually you can dodge them by leaving early and hiking literally 1 mile from the trailhead.
>>2137831>but i post fake reviews about agressive dogs, mud, and overgrowth of thornbushesokay but are the reviews about homophobic rednecks fake or not?
The airbnb host told me about this swimming hole upsteam of the wilmore dam on folsom rd. Water was 5ft + deep in places. You can also swim in the dam itself but that seemed a bit more dangerous. Water was real cold but it was a hot and humid day. We saw a maybe 12 year old boy riding an atv as we drove back to the main road after swimming. Interesting how this part of WV (McDowell County) most of the trails are for atvs and not really so much intended for hiking, compared to further north in WV where ATV trails are not so common but hiking trails are.
Usually this area is a shitty brown/dry section on the way to some nicer forested trails. Unusual heavy rain has given it some life.
>>2138153neat where is that?
>spams link to a server nobody joinskeep doing it, its funny
HE is still waiting btw
one of these days i'll join you, and you wont know its me

>>2138400thanks, tardation comes naturally
OP, you are doing something to piss this weird guy off, have you tried talking to him?
>>2138406he has not.
maybe he will see me, maybe he wontbut i KNOW that he will fail to see HIM
>every post of his is clear as daycan OP recover, i think not.
Cairnfags have gone too far
>>2136933holy shit you sound like a massive fag
I tried to find what appeared on the topo map as maybe an old logging road running along the feeder creek (big branch) into the reservoir (lake berwind) but it was marked off with no trespassing signs sadly.
>>2138272>>2138277>>2138288>>2138290BASED>mfw DC faggot is so butthurt from taking it up the ass he can't even reply
>>2136902>>2136913sounds like a shit "friend". Why was he your friend in the first place?
