    Sorry to hear about your bite. Glad you're not being a dog "drama queen" about it. I've had dogs nip/bite my hands, usually when putting 'em in their faces. My bad. Still, extremely rare.

    The Big South Fork NRRA is full of loops and a great place to hike, though not nearly so mountainous as those suggested already. Depends on what you're after.
