Alone at the top of Georgia  Sucess!

Got there about 9:00am. Absolutely deserted. Worked out well because I didn't have the $3 cash to pay for parking. But also means I had to deal with just taking the half-mile trail. Disappointing hike, but nice to be alone up there. After getting back down, took Jack's Knob to South (true) Summit of Wolfpen Ridge.

Georgia high point  Sucess!

Summited numerous times via Arkaquah and Jacks Knob Trail. Rime ice formations provide great photo opportunities in the winter. There's a 5k running race on the paved access road every winter. Gains 2500 ft in 3.1 miles -- ouch!

I'd like to hike the AT at some point, so this visit hopefully will not be the last.

HP #28  Sucess!

Start of the second hat trick of the current loop...
We wanted to get there for the 4th HP in the same day but it got too dark and decided to wait till the next day...
The view wasn't there much... pretty foggy!!;
Asked to get the summit marker unlocked

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.
