Ascent Trip Report

DAY #15 ---- "SCHOOL GROUP" ----

Quiet T day but a tough one, SUDS, few views. Lots of "mtn laurel" in full bloom w some "wild azelia". Uneventfull.

15h45 - Arrived shelter ( poor, no benches, full register ), Robert in for the night, plus a large (abt 15) high school group from florida. 3 in the shelter, the rest tenting nearby, a busy place. The teenagers were in good spirits.

Haven't seen Chris since NOC. I think he and Wren have the hots for each other - he's probably waiting for Wren & her mom to catch up.
