Ascent Trip Report

The Botanical Gardens were busy with strollers on a warm afternoon, with very few hikers below the summits tho meeting quite a few mountain bikers at South Peak and another before my bushwack from the Blue Trail up to Mt Defiance, crossing Red Trail just east of the summit and descending found Geocache & an audience of curious deer standing over its bed, reaching Green Trail afterward which was rising toward some junction, continued dropping down to Skylands' trails, "Four Continents Statues" in meadow and trail head.
