Ascent Trip Report

... a long enjoyable drive from Tellico TN, the flurry at trailhead worrisome, the easy hike to a golden slicing lip of eastern horizon above mountaintops reaching all across an overcast sky was transcending if unnerving with a nearby monument to fallen frozen lumberjacks, quick jog back to wheels and long descent to the flatlands and viewpoint stops to admire the lands of 'overhill'.
