Ascent Trip ReportGot to PA at about 6:30 AM to start this very long hike. Went up Tejas trail, left on Bush Mtn trail, summited Bush Mtn, continued on Blue Ridge trail and summited Blue Ridge Mtn (minor peak), which was only a tenth or two off the trail, continued on Blue Ridge trail and summited Blue Ridge North (minor peak), continued and took a right on Tejas trail, which I followed all the way back down to the PA.
There are trees on the top of Bush Mtn, which inhibit the 360 view, but there are good views there.
