Ascent Trip Report

After I saw enough manatees, I went searching for the high point from the campground; bushbacking my way toward the higher ground from a white dirt road (only seen from Satellite map). Once I bagged it, I found a way to reach the headwater of Volusia Blue Spring to get back to the boardwalk (requiring some bushwhacking).
