Ascent Trip ReportParked in Massie Gap lot. Didn't even change into my hiking shoes, as I wanted to get back on the road to the GSMNP as fast as possible. Hiked with Katie up to the AT, where she waited while I hiked/ran up to Rogers. Trail was more rocky than I expected, but very interesting. Loved the ponies at the Thomas Knob shelter. Saw lots of folks on the AT, but none on the blue blazed trail to Rogers. Picked up Pine on the way down, amid shouting kids. Katie and I had stashed carrots in my pack which 'accidentally' found their way near the ponies.
