Ascent Trip Report

This was a section hike on the AT. I was whooped with all the miles, and had little time to get back to my car. I have learned alot since this hike. Anyhow, I could not enjoy the summit as much as I did on a subsequent climb. I took a quick pic, and hustled back to Port Clinton B-4 dark. The vista is tremendous, and is one of my favorites. (Just so you know, this hike can be done in under 10 miles - and is worth the effort)
