Wandering Wednesday: Bald Mountain Recreation Area

Today’s destination for wandering is the Bald Mountain Recreation Area. It’s not a mountain nor is it bald but hey, if it were up to me to come up with the name for this place it would probably be something ridiculous as pretty wooded area number 53 or something else as asinine.
