Ascent Trip Report

Headed up via the Alum Cave Trail for a year-end hiking trip. Started at 8am, saw only 10 or so people the entire way up. Views up the whole way were outstanding, with Great and Smoky clouds hanging over the towering ridgelines. Cliff Tops was clouded when I first arrived, but within just a few moments the clouds parted revealing the Great Smokies in all their glory. Enjoyed the sights as long as I could before the wind chill got too intense.
