High Point #4  Sucess!

Watched the sunset from the west face of the mountain along the boulders. Absolutely stunning! Absolutely would recommend hitting this at sunset. It was a Saturday summer evening and it wasn't crowded. The high point marker is non-descript in the ground about 50 ft south of the tower. Caution: Not all sections of road are paved, some of the gravel portions have some serious potholes, small cars beware.

Spruce Knob and a Via Ferrata  Sucess!

The day before, I climbed the Via Ferrata at Nelson Rocks and camped near Seneca Rocks, both AMAZING hikes. At Spruce Knob I hiked the Whispering Spruce Trail to the observation tower for incredible views.

Hardest part was the drive up  Sucess!

1/3 HP today. It was sunny and calm, but the road conditions were not good. Ice and 6-12" of snow going up the mountain.

HP #27!  Sucess!

Drove to the top right before a rainstorm hit. A lot of people hike it, but I was restricted for time trying to catch the eclipse in Nashville. Very green from the summit.

Drive up...  Sucess!

Well, just drove up, so not much of an accomplishment on this one. School field trip and others were there on this very nice day

HP #25  Sucess!

3rd of the day, on this 4 peak HP trip. Great weather, and very pretty as the sun was starting to set. Too many people, however. That always puts a damper on things. Part of it when you can drive to the summit though, I suppose. Off to Roanoke, VA.

HP # 48  Sucess!

A little foggy and windy at the top but otherwise part #3 of an uneventful HP trifecta today. Roads bare and dry - no snow anywhere near the mountain. HP #5 for my Dad.

HP #1  Sucess!

Hiked in from Spring Ridge down to Seneca Creek and camped near the falls. Got up the next day and made the hard trek up to the ridge. Final climb was slow, but steady and eventually made it to the summit.

good road  Sucess!

I was surprised that they built such a nice long road all the way up. But, turns out that there were a number of other cars up there, even though it was a mid-week late afternoon.
