Ascent Trip Report

Got off I-68 at Meyersdale Rd. a few miles east of Grantsville. Right, then right on US40 and shortly left on dirt Elvis Presley Blvd. (or maybe it was Drive?) Around back of a couple of trailer homes and then a short walk through the woods. An elderly gentleman greeted me at the back home. He didn't quite understand the idea of peakbagging, but queried me if I had seen any deer. He hadn't seen any since the last heavy snowfall and was worried about them.
