In a hurry  Sucess!

Snuck out in the morning from Fontana Village during a family reunion. Only had time to climb from the parking lot. #22 HP for me

Arkaquah Trail 11 miles -  Sucess!

It was great. Great views at the end and lots of 16"+ icicles. We have great pictures and it was my 3rd highpoint.

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.

Route Climbed: Parking Lot Trail  Sucess!

This was the second state highpoint for the day(TN,GA,SC). There was great views from the very nice observation deck.

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.

Parking Lot Route  Sucess!

Paid the $3 lazy tax and jogged up the steep but paved trail.

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.

Route Climbed: Arkaquah Trail Date Climbed: May 2005  Sucess!

Doing an approach trail, such as Arkaquah Trail or Jacob's Knob make it a little more of a challenge. I did this on a clear spring day and could see all the way back to Atlanta from the summit.

Highpoint #21. This is probably one of the few two-day ascents of this mountain. We arrived a few minutes before midnight and left just afterwards, hoping to bag GA-SC-NC-TN-VA-KY in 24 hours.

Very foggy/drizzly day. the rhododendrons near the summit were in blume. Oddly enough, we passed no one on the trail and there was not anyone at the observation deck at the summit.

Route Climbed: Trail Date Climbed: 2003  Sucess!

Ran up and down 4 times striaght once training for a marathon. This was when we were visiting friends who live close by, in fact ran the Hogpen Hill climb in Helen, which is a race 12 miles straight up. Back in the 1990's, took my young daughters all the time. They loved the mist and fog on the trail, early mornings. Cheers.
