Ascent Trip Report

I really enjoyed this hike. This area is pretty. What made it even better was rime ice on the trees above 4,400', hoarfrost and a high of 40 degrees at the summit. The wind was pretty brutal though. Abnormally cold for a May day and I loved every minute of it. I tried to follow old AT sections as much as I could (or felt like) one way and the current AT the other direction.
