Ascent Trip Report

5th of 8 high point summits by my son, Bryan, and I over a span of 3 days. Drove from Mount Rogers in Virginia earlier in the day and drove up to the top of the mountain. Almost missed the turnoff at the VA/KY state border. No view to speak of at the top. Several communication towers and other buildings were at the top. The nice views were on the drive up & back down. One pleasant surprise was we encountered a black bear standing up along the side of the road on our trip down. We slowed to a stop and he then ran off into the woods.
