Ascent Trip Report

Hit both Area 1 and Area 2. Pebble Drive (Area 1) in Clayton NC doglegs left after the turn-off from Old US 70. The walk up along the line east from here to the HP in a dirt field is short. Had a great discussion with the residents of Rock Circle, whose backyards are adjacent to this HP. They were thrilled to know it was one of two HPs but I am not sure it will raise their property values.

Area 2 at 313 Covered Bridge Road (Area 2). Located the High Pine across the street per GARMIN readings and it appears to be the same or similar to Area 1.
