Ascent Trip Report

Absolutely nuts. So many people trying to make the trek up from the parking lot. Not really a HP I felt proud to be doing at the time, at least not alongside the company I appeared to be in. My saving grace was that I had just hiked Mount Leconte earlier that day. Still, I felt guilty, so decided to pop off the pavement and follow a few white blazes, at least to feel like I was on the AT.
