Quick Benton MacKaye side trip Date Climbed: May 3, 2010
Well, leave it to a peak-hunter to be unable to just stick to a section backpack of the AT. We hit several side-trips during the week, and Ball Mountain was one of them. It's a bummer that there are no views, but the poison ivy was manageable and we didn't see any nice little logs/stumps that screamed "Copperhead Nest" so we forged on to the top. Neat to find the geo-cache.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
