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.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
