Ascent Trip Report

My final peak of the day. This was also my final peak bagged under Donald Trump's presidency.

Though I have bagged this peak more times than I can remember, tonight was unique as it was the very first time I had the summit entirely to myself. The wind was blowing hard and it was absolutely frigid up here. I tagged the natural high point of the mountain than ran up the tower and enjoyed the spectacular sunset.

After today I have only the true HP of Hanging Rock Mountain and Flat Shoals Mountain to bag and I'll have every peak of Hanging Rock State Park under my belt.
