Glad I brought rain gear!  Sucess!

It is funny how peak bagging works. This trip started with "Lets hike Mount Mitchell", but we all know that that is not how it ends. So we flew into Atlanta, drove to Brasstown Bald, stayed in Asheville, hiked Clingmans Dome, Sassafras, Brasstown Bald, and finally on the last day in the rain Mount Mitchell. Although there was no view and it was seasonally cold it gave us all the reason more to celebrate the summit. In summation, Three days, 4 high points, over 30 miles.

HP #24  Sucess!

Loved the Blue Ridge Parkway. Windy and cloudy and cool enough for a jacket up at the summit.

Highest east of the Mississippi  Sucess!

Last of a HP trip to appalachia. Was pouring rain the entire day. Soaking wet up top, no views, but still glad I was able to make it -- was turned away a year ago with road closures. HP #26. Gonna have to come back to this area for VA and KY, but not a bad problem to have, especially in the fall!

Old Mitchell Trail  Sucess!

Climbed via the Old Mitchell Trail. A fun, technical, though short, hike on a beautiful summer day. The summit had clear weather and 65 degree temps, so it was unusual from what I have heard!

Mt Mitchell Trail  Sucess!

Enjoyable solo though little long a hike with lots of wild flowers on the trail mainly rhododendron, didn't run into many people on the trail and was clapping my hands and yelling bear in order not to startle bears in the area. Called prior to the trip for the service shuttle which turned out to be not reliable and out of service this weekend, didn't mind the hike down though. All in all great trip with rewarding views at the Summit.

atop of Mt. Mitchell  Sucess!

Out in Asheville for GeoWoodstock XV and came up to knock Mt. Mitchell off of my list. Beautiful summit and drive up. Rain clouds set in to make a memorable experience.

Holy crap, I'm tired.   Sucess!

Beautiful trails. I'm going to pay for that elevation gain in the morning, though.

Super Cold Summit  Sucess!

Excellent hike to summit. Icy patches on trail on upper 1/2 of trail. 15 degrees F on the summit clear and no wind. Amazing.
