Ascent Trip Report

As much as I was ready to get to the car, after traversing back from Browning Knob (and Lyn Lowry and Plott Balsam) I still walked up and touched the summit of Waterrock for the second time today before heading down the tourist trail. It was great to finish the traverse and avoid being rained on. It was a humid day, though.
