Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful but short hike! There were some thunderstorms in the area, but since the trail was so short, I hiked quickly to the top. The storm arrived when I got to the summit and drenched me. Loud booms of thunder and lightning lit up the sky above me, along with the downpour. I quickly signed the register, took a few photos, and ran back down the trail. I was soaked but it was exhilarating. Spring was in full force, as everything was electric green.

State highpoint #5! TN, NV, AZ, TX, LA
