Ascent Trip Report

Nice day, anywhere form 0 to 16 inches of snow on the Bowlens Creek trail to the top, very rewarding when I came out of the woods of Bowlens Creek and saw the Black Mountain Ridge stretching South in the distance....VERY REWARDING. Followed the snowshoe tracks to the summit after grabbing a bite and snapped a couple pics of the Young's Knob sign at the top. 1 of 7 for this trip.
