    I was camping in WNC a few years back and heard a high-pitched scream. It sounded like someone getting murdered. Thought a ranger later told me it was probably an owl. Now I wonder, how many animals tend to make a blood-curdling cry during the night?

    JNI64, no Metallica for me, but I bring earplugs. Yellowstone... geysers, thermal springs, waterfalls, weíve got it. Also cougars, bobcats, elk, grizzlies, black bears, and bison. Iíve only heard about the Dolly Sods, though. Long ago, when I lived in Kentucky, a neighbor did a photo trip there. His descriptions were magical. Iíve always remembered that.

    I was gonna mention both foxes and owls. Both can sound off with undivided attention getting "screams". May have been a bobcat, but may have been a fox, or an owl.
    When I hiked the Foothills Trail, I stayed up on Sassafras Mountain and had a fox start sounding off (blood chilling "screaming") in the middle of the night, from what sounded like maybe 50 ft behind my hammock. Thankfully I knew what it was, so I just smiled, and went back to sleep.

    I had the pleasure of visiting Dolly Sods last winter with a friend. A fresh snow had just fallen....talk about magical. I can't wait to get back this winter. I hear Seneca Rocks is another gem.
    While searching for that unknown edge in life, never forget to look home. For the greatest edge you can find in life is to stand in the protective shadow of those who love you.

    I haven't been to Seneca rocks yet I hear the views from the top are awesome. But I don't think there's alot of hiking in the area , I think it's more of a climbers paradise.

    You also have the cranberry wilderness with over 47,000 acres just south of the Dollysods it's also in the Monongahela National forest as is the Dollysods .

    I might head to the sods Thanksgiving week.
