Dow WilliamsRoute Climbed: Trail Date Climbed: 2002  Sucess!

Dow Williams

A GA friend who lives and hikes the GA- AT trails killed a rattle snake that was in the center of the trail because he thought it might bite his dog. I was not impressed. All happened before I could offer my alternative, simply move the snake off the trail. It was a good size rattler.



Would have done a lot of hiking here in the 1990's, but was just back for a visit.

Nice views from the top. A few secluded tent sites near the summit if you look hard enough.

This was the first summit that my wife and I made together. We backpacked up and ran out of water. We sucked ryme ice off of leaves to hydrate on the way down. I have climbed this mountain many times since to train for the Cascade Volcainos.

Hit the trail head around 5:45 in the evening. Kinda hazy this evening, so the views from the top weren't great, but the sun was coming through the clouds in very cool patterns while I hung out at the summit for a bit. 50 minutes up and 40 minutes back down. Weather was very pleasant for hiking - 70's with relatively low humidity.

Hit this one on my 2000 AT thruhike and stayed in the shelter. Beautiful summit and I really liked the cabin although it is a bit beat up - like I was.

BodhiRoute Climbed: AT from Neels Gap Date Climbed: 10.26.2002 - 2 AM EST  Sucess!

Bodhi

Summited in dense clouds / fog @ 2 AM EST on Saturday. There were 5 guys (in headlamps) in total that summited (Clay, Ryan, Mark, Eric, & Bryan). Had a great time hiking up the mountain. Saw some people w/ a bear bag directly over the tent - made us laugh. Views would have been better in the day & no clouds.

Passed over the summit on my A.T. thru-hike. I think I slept in the shelter on top, but I'm not positive.
