Ascent Trip Report

Reconstruction and recovery act added a little over 2 miles to the trip as the Roaring Fork Motorway was closed for construction. Hike up and down was beautiful as it was a bluebird day in the Smokies. Not a cloud in sight. View from the top of Brushy was magnificent. LeConte seemed just an arms reach away. Lost my Spot and had to backtrack back up to retreive it. That is the extra elevation gain.
