Went backpacking in Dolly Sods for the first time with several others including one very experienced Sodder. The area is unique; much of the ground is soggy, fairly deep mud in some places along the trail, rocky trails, interesting landscape, open areas with spruce trees, lots of berries, looks and feels like a more northern area. We camped in beautiful woods next to a stream. Saw a huge beaver dam while hiking. Also stopped at nearby Bear Rocks to enjoy some nice views. Great adventure!
