PA Hunting Trip

My Uncle Bob has been trying to get me "up country" hunting with him for many years now.  The last time I went deer hunting with him was in 1996.  I can't believe it's been 16 years.  I'd forgotten how vast the woods are, how steep the mountains are, and how truly beautiful a place Sinnamahoney, PA is.  It's in the middle of nowhere.  No mobile phone service, no internet access.  Just a bunch of guys that love to hunt.
They have 2 houses set up as hunting camps and a few of the guys have been going up there for 30 years.  My Uncle was the first of 2 or 3 guys to start the camp.
I'll write more about my trip, but want to post up some pictures because some friends and family wanted to see what it was all about.

Pictures don't do the vastness of these mountains justice

Did a bomb go off in here?  The "kids" bunk room.  The "kids" make the hunts go, and they go ALL day
