Ascent Trip Report

A true natural wonder turned into a monument of all that's wrong with the South. The Ku Klux Klan's second founding was here in 1915, and they were involved in the design, financing and construction of the carving. Until fairly recently, the Klan had a permanant easement on the property to hold meetings and cross burnings whenever they pleased - the state has since removed the easement.

But I've had good times on the mountain. Good times.
