Ascent Trip Report

It was my first attempt towards my goal of climbing to the highest point in each of the fifty sthose in calendar winter. I thought Brasstown Bald was a good first because I live in Florida and I could bag a few other state high points while I was up there. I was traveling with my dad and we wanted to bike up the road and then walk to the summit but we didn't really have time so we drove to the summit parking lot and walked up via the paved trail. Not exactly a challenging summit but it'll do. If I didn't know better I wouldnt have known it was winter. It was bright and sunny so I walked up barefoot in a cutoff shirt, we got to the top and I was very happy. 1 down 49 to go.
