Falcon Cliff on North Fork Mountain with Fall Color

The several hundred foot tall walls of Falcon Cliff can be seen during a late afternoon autumn day along the western top of North Fork Mountain in the Monongahela National Forest. The enormity of the cliffs can be judged by the mature Red Pine trees that are dwarfed by the Tuscarora Sandstone cliff faces. Raging gusts of wind were non-stop on the western edge of the summit this day, but a mere few yards away from the edge the wind was completely calm. The distant ridge in the background is the Dolly Sods area of Allegheny Front that is nearly two thousand feet higher than North Fork Mountain.
