Ascent Trip Report

... followed previous reports to cornfield trailhead, reached road's height of land to start bushwack upward reaching a sea of waist-high fern, worrying ticks near bumped into a large lounging grey snake stretched across the ferns who finally slithered away from his perch leaving me worrying my escape past summit and on quick to clearer more open ground. I feel a naturalist's experience of insight and smidge into nature's wonders, the western slope is much less thick tho there is no avoiding the ferns to actually reaching the summit. All in all another fun time in the thick of the woods with only views of nature and critters livening the chase to peakbag.
