Ascent Trip Report

Nothing like doing CHPs in a weather front all dressed in black rain gear.....people stop and see your car parked along a rural road near a county HP and assume you are having car trouble and feel bad you are in the pouring rain and stop and offer assistance but what do you tell them? am is fine....I like walking in the rain.....give them the whole HPing speel?.....perhaps drive up high-pointing is better on a day like today.
