Ascent Trip Report

The weather was cool but pleasant. We turned onto the gravel road in a Southerly direction. Eric executed a wonderful stallionesque 180 degree turn which made me nervous because I thought he was going to pull into a field but instead he parked. We walked the long and treacherous five feet to the edge of the brush, dangerously pokey brush like angry rose bushes awaited us. We made our way, risking life and limb to the highpoint ten feet into the brush and stepped upon the mossy lump that was the highpoint. Success! Oh sweet success after such a difficult journey. I laughed and laughed at the peak geeks who seek out such silly places just so that they can enter them into Tee Hee. :-)

(oh yeah...and there was a mule...or else Ken would have trespassed to see if another HP was possible in the field across the road...oy vey...ya gotta love peak geeks!!! :D )
