This was just a "little" weekend trip that turned out to be WAY too much fun. Flyfishing, excellent steaks, Black-and-Tan experimentation (it takes Guinness charged with nitrogen), hiking and Jeeping (Imogene and Black Bear Road - so much fun it ought to be illegal!)

Some other Black Bear Road websites:
http://www.mhjcontherocks.com/Community/Trips/61.aspx - great pics. The first one is the hard climb up (about 100 yds or so) near the beginning of the trail - much steeper than it looks. Further down on his page is great shot of "The Steps", except that you can't see the CLIFF on the driver's side.
