Ascent Trip Report

Another "I walk the Line" county high point. By that I mean follow the R/W under the power lines to the highest ground you can find...

Set your GPS for 213 Greystone Road (Goldsboro) and follow that road to a cul-de-sac. Got permission from the third door I knocked on to proceed through the backyard of the center home to a unmaintained road under several sets of power. And these were hummers, with a lot current rushing through them. Since it was raining, I picked up the pace to spot high ground just past the intersection with a perpendicular old track. Just to the right of the overhanging lines was a noticeable sandy mound. My Garmin read 195 feet. If it was better weather, I would have explored some more, but thought better of it. Left only a wet footprint and then trudged back to the car.

My 93rd North Carolina CoHP. Only have Ocracoke Island and 6 more mountain peaks to go in far western part of the State. Hope to get'er done this Year!
