Nice January hike  Sucess!

Hiked up from Elkmont via Jakes Creek and Miry Ridge Trails. The bushwack is short but very overgrown.

Waist Deep Snow on Ridge  Sucess!

Trifecta of Blanket, Dripping Springs, and Bent Arm. Originally went up the manway, but GPS indicated I would have a 300 yrd slog through dense Rhodo's in waist deep snow...backed out and went down the trail about a quarter-mile to get even w/ the summit and pushed up through the brush...easily a Bu4 rating w/ no views...but a severe cornice had formed along the ridgeline. That was interesting-for the eastern US.

bushWHACKED  Sucess!

Took the manway this time, which requires about 200 yards of serious bushwhacking along the ridge to the summit. This is a dense, dense rhododendron forest.
