Ascent Trip Report

A few unintneresting candidate points checked out. As usual, when the CHP does not have one unique good hike, I at least try to find and document the one HP candidate that interests me most. One of the candidate HPs is an cemetery. Markers from the mid to late 1800s and some very recent and knoll that sticks up above the HP. Still amazed how many CHPs are in the middle of cemeteries. In the rain, I did not do my typical seek out the oldest marker, instead left to check out the less interesting candidates along the way. Only gave gain for the cemetery.
