Ascent Trip Report

Christmas Bird Count 2015 hell hike: weather started out cloudy and cool, and then as we hit the ascent from Camp Creek up Skunk Trail, it started to rain. In 35-45F temps. By the time we got to the Quien Sabe Junction, we were miserable, and then the rain got WORSE. Soaked boots, soaked socks, soaked clothes, and mud everywhere on the descent to Seven Springs. Hypothermia very nearly got me on this one ... undoubtedly the worst hike I've ever experienced, and we failed to summit any peaks.

Jan 2017 would prove far better, though no more productive from the peakbagging front.
