Ascent Trip Report

Eva and I moved to Pennsylvania in August of 2001 and got settled after some time. For the Labor Day weekend, we planned for a hiking trip and found a description of a trail at Mt Davis in a guide book. Seemed nice with a mountain in Pa.
We hiked on a loop trail in the woods in nice and sunny weather. There was a big rattlesnake on the trail, in the sun, and we had to bushwack around it. Reaching the lookout tower on the top, we realized that this was the highest mountain in Pennsylvania.

Little did we then know what to come with highpointing and climbing.

This is the ascent of our 1st State Highpoint.
