Route Climbed: Parking Lot Trail  Sucess!

Left Asheville at 6:45 and was standing on the summit by 9:10. Took the easy path as I didn't have time to do the Jack's Knob trail. Bit blustery and clouds obscured some of the view, but had the top of Georgia to myself. Nobody there to collect my $3 either. Scrambled to the top of Wolfpen Ridge HP (P4561) for grins. Of course by the time I was speeding back through Hiawassee the clouds were clearing nicely and I could see the summit. Oh well, off to Mount Mitchell...number 9 in the book of HPs.

Low Clouds  Sucess!

Took the short hike up from the big parking area .6 miles. On my way back to VA. Being the 1st of January, not too crowded luckily. Great views, and although a developed summit, it's done nicely at least. Nice weather, chilly, but warm for this time of year all over the country. Saw a sign for a 4.5 mile AT route...I want to check that out sometime. Highpoint #8.

Route climbed: Arkaquah Trail  Sucess!

The weather was perfect for a climb to the top. Not too humid at all. Met some of the people who maintain the trail (the name of their organization escapes me at the moment) and enjoyed talking to them.

Took the easy way up to the top  Sucess!

I cheated and took the easy way to the top ;) This was my first state highpoint! It was a very foggy day and so there was no view but I did enjoy touring the USFS Visitor Center at the top.

Brasstown Bald  Sucess!

Flew into Atlanta and visited Georgia Aquarium on April 8. Drove to Brasstown Bald the next day. Climbed via the Jacks Knob Trail 5.8 miles round trip. Nobody on the trail. A lot of the people at the parking lot and at the museum on top. Very nice hike on a sunny day. A ranger unlocked a gate so that I could take a picture of the USGS benchmark. HP #7.

Easy Walk Up  Sucess!

I've made the easy, mostly paved path to the summit several times. Being up there after a big ice storm has to be my favorite time spent on the mountain top. The scenary is unique from any other time of the year, and I was the only one up there at the time.

Route Climbed: Jack's Knob Trail  Sucess!

Climbed from Jacks Gap to the parking area with my mom and my little cousin where we met the rest of our family. From there they all took the shuttle to the top while I walked up the path. It was cloudy at first but as we headed back down the clouds lifted and the view was great.

HP

After a 2 1/2 day sprint from Springer to Unicoi Gap, I drove up. Unfortunately all clouded up and no views. Nice museum. I was rather nasty from the hike and my feet were killing me.
