Ascent Trip Report

Hiked and ran up Huckleberry knob several times and Little Huck and Hoopers bald 8/20 - 8/21. Camped at the top of Huck with many others for the 2017 eclipse. Drove down from NH. It was an amazing experience on many levels. Just to see the milky way at night was worth it alone, or to see that sunrise, and the total eclipse from there was just incredible. Lots of great people found the same place from all over the country and drove there just as I did without knowing what it would be like.
One of the best decisions I've ever made.
