Nice Day

Everything was nice and green. Found the only view near the top where the power lines are.

Just another high point...  Sucess!

Drive to lot near summit took care of the initial work... but I did hike the summit trail down a couple miles and back (good for 1100 ft elevation).

Drove as far as I could..  Sucess!

until my car couldn't make it any further because of the snow and ice so I hiked up the last mile or two. Kinda disappointing summit.

HP #16  Sucess!

I summited on what must have been the first day of hunting season. On the drive to Sassafras Mt., I must have passed hundreds of hunters lining the roads waiting for the start time.

Ehhh. Part 2  Sucess!

It's in a really pretty place but... South Carolina and Mississppi are very similar and both could learn a lesson from Florida on turning nothing into something.

Better Than Woodall Mountain...  Sucess!

This was my first of six State Highpoints reached over Memorial Day weekend. The gate was open. This HP was better than Woodall Mountain (Mississippi HP), but not by much. State Highpoint #33 for me.

Quick!  Sucess!

Not as tough to find as I thought - directions provided on Summitpost were perfect! Pretty dumpy summit, however.

Awful Drive  Sucess!

Approached from the north, had an awful time on the tiny winding roads and difficulties even finding the right roads. At least it's off the list!

Foggy  Sucess!

I hiked the Foothills Trail from the Chimneytop Gap trailhead with one of my dogs while my father drove to the top with my other dog to meet us. I could see the surrounding mountains through the leafless trees on the way up, but it was too foggy at the top to see anything. HP19

HP #8  Sucess!

Had a little difficulty finding it, but I got it! This ended a trip that involved bagging six highpoints in one weekend!

Nice View  Sucess!

The place was kind of messy. The sign was destroyed. Other than that I was glad I could mark it off my list. No view from the top. It was my 2 yo. daughters first high point (she got Brasstown and Clingmans after this one).

State HP #33  Sucess!

Only hiked .3 mile along the Foothills Trail.

HP #10 - short walk  Sucess!

I (with my wife (Tracy) and son (Alex), then almost 3 yrs old) did this as part of our second family HP trip. Not much of a view!

US 178 Rocky Bottom  Sucess!

I did this with my wife and son while we were on our way to Hilton Head. Very humid and really not much of a view. More interesting to see it from the road side.

Worst yet  Sucess!

Wow. I don't have much to say about this one. Time for some clean up.

Highpoint #17  Sucess!

I was short on time, so I did it the quick and boring way - walked up from the gate at the end of the road. The sun was setting, and there were a number of mosquitos trying to get a taste of me. The round trip from my hotel in Greenville took me about 2.5 hours.

Foggy day  Sucess!

Couldn't see views at all, since it was rainy and extremely foggy. Anyway, it's crossed off the list. They need a sign or something telling people it's the highest point of SC. Pretty lame. Even my Indiana highpoint has a sign!

Impressive  Sucess!

Climbed the mountain via the Foothills Trail from Chimneytop Gap on April 12, 2008. I was pretty impressed with the type of terrain that characterized the mountain on the hike up. I was not expecting that in South Carolina. It was fairly steep and remote. Enjoyed the area. Visited again after proposing to my girlfriend, but this time we drove up. We were heading back to Atlanta after climbing some sixers in the Pisgah National Forest.

Highpoint #5  Sucess!

Drove over from Gatlinburg, drove up, saw the HP. Stopped by a few North Carolina waterfalls along the way to break up the drive.
