Ascent Trip ReportCame in from Peekamoose Rd, hit trail head @ 12:45pm with goal to also climb Table Mtn. Steady rain, mountain covered in mist and clouds. Got a chance to try out my recent eBay purchase of used Columbia water resistent jacket. This was quite a challenging ascent but so rewarding. In was so naturally beautiful with so much new vegitation and several varieties of wildflowers. Unfortunately I could see anything up there but I guess that helped me appreciate what I was seeing right in front of me. Passed one couple going up and three couples coming down. One of which was a fellow Englishman with a very pronounced English accent even after having been in the USA for 40 years. Continued to Table Mtn and returned to trail head @ 5pm.
