Ascent Trip Report

Finally had decent weather on top of Clingmans Dome. I was just going to take The Great Explorer to the top so she could earn her hiking stick medallion, and bag Mount Love and Mount Buckley when I was up there. But TGE wanted to hike, so we did Love and Mount Collins together, and I hiked back to get the car. Great views, annoying crowds.
