Ascent Trip Report

Not a glorious peak bagging experience but after not attempting to do Humphreys because Lizzy was sick and failing to do Wheeler on account of Lizzy just getting over being sick and an incoming snowy whiteout; it was something. I couldn't end the trip without putting something in the log and this was easy and gave me something to do for the day plus a learning experience about how Pluto was discovered and the origins of sci-fi stories.

From Lizzy's cousin Sara's apparentment by the college 2.1 miles

Just followed roads and checked out the observatory.

Walked to the Beaver Street Brewery 1.3 miles

Got picked up by Lizzy's cousin and went to see a movie.
