Ascent Trip Report

As I was taking my time before starting out, a young couple in an old pickup with two dogs in the back drove by. They seemed kind of in a hurry for that road, like maybe they couldn't wait to get to a room. But apparently a motel wasn't what they had in mind; it had to be a p2k! A little later I saw two people going up the final slope. I was expecting to see someone I had seen earlier coming from South Fork Mtn. Wanting to talk to him, I soon set off. 20 minutes later, I reached the top and was surprised to see the young couple and their dogs. They kind of acted stand-offish, but I thought maybe they were more concerned with securing their dogs. So I just sat down at the summit rock a hundred feet away. They eventually exchanged pleasantries as they walked past and down to their truck. After finishing my snack and pictures, I made one last look for a register. I thought maybe it was where the couple were, so I walked over to take a look. There was no register; just evidence of how they had spent some of that 20 minutes before I joined them on the summit. Maybe they're just starting out, and misunderstood what we mean by "peakbagging".
