On this day, I chose to park in an area that I had never used before. It is a narrow strip of land, perhaps just 100 yards wide, with private property on both sides. I followed it back to where I wanted to go, the Horseshoe Bottoms area, hiking about 1 1/2 hours to get there, wandering around there for a while, resting at a very high bluff overlooking the river, then started back. At some point, I realized that I could not find that 100 yard strip of land to reach my car...but kept encountering No Trespassing signs. I could easily have just ignored those and hiked straight north to the road and then followed it either east or west to the car, but chose not to do that, so ended up hiking west to another road, then walking a bit over a mile back to the car.
I followed a small stream heading on back to the Middlefork River.
I came across a few varieties of mushrooms in the woods. One reminded me of coral, but I do not know the identity of any.
