Ascent Trip ReportBeth and I spent yesterday walking around colonial Williamsburg, which was quite interesting and highly recommended. The weather was unbelievable: about 100 degrees with humidity way up there. The dewpoints seemed to be in the 80s. In other words, the moment you step into the outdoors you sweat through your shirt. One can imagine how the colonists did in their heavy wool get-ups back in the olden days. Safe to say everyone probably stank back then.
Today was our departure day, heading toward Wintergreen, a resort village in the mountains, where we'd be meeting Beth's family for a reunion. Naturally, any easy county highpoints along the way were considered, starting with York County. From Williamsburg, we followed US-60 a few miles into the town of Lightfoot, parking at a Shell gas station. The highpoint is out back, a small grassy hump. That was it. How pathetic. But it counted. We got drinks and resumed our drive.
