Ascent Trip Report

Heart acting up again and had to see the cardiologist. While waiting before the visit and after, I can at least do urban highpointing and hike all over this beautiful town and enjoy all the hilly terrain going down to the lake several times, investigating the trains and old bed and breakfasts and hitting the top of mighty summit "Mount Dora" (which is always anti-climatic as it is a boring spot in the residential area) but all the meandering journey is worth it each time to get some healthy steps in while waiting for the fun of being at a doctor's office. If you pick your routes well you can get some hilly terrain that is quite unique in FL and make it better exercise.
