Ascent Trip Report

Unlike my Ranger Trail ascent of Green Mountain, this short little ascent was crowed with tourists and was not able to reward with the spectacular views of Green, so I drop my enjoyment rating substantially to a 4 (Still higher than someone from CO would give) but try peakbagging in FL before you judge me over zealous with my optimistic enjoyment of peaks around the USA! The summit blocks are not squarely within the closed contour so I rambled around the top of this broad grassy - pine peak and took in the spring weather trying to see if there was another peak but then satisfied I had trampled enough of the country side headed down to take on one more peak before sunset.
