This is an unexpected take on Bear Rocks Preserve at the northern end of Dolly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia. Bear Rocks Preserve is a Nature Conservancy property located on a high altitude plateau and characterized by exposed bedrock which you see here in this image. I was taken with the golden trees and the rock ledge. Taking shelter from the brutally cold and powerful wind drove me down over the edge of the Allegheny Front, just for some respite from the conditions. Finding this scene was the icing on the cake!
