Ascent Trip Report

Left our campsite at Blackwater Falls in the morning and headed towards Seneca Rocks/Spruce Knob. It was a hot day (for 4800' of elevation anyway). We enjoyed a picnic at the top of Spruce Knob in one of the picnic spots. Only a couple were shaded by the sun so we grabbed one. Afterwards, we had a nice leisurely walk to the summit tower and I celebrated State High Point #29. I hope to reach #30 out West late this summer.
