Ascent Trip Report

No sure I decided to attempt this in the middle of a crazy storm. Up blue mountian road and then attempted to drive on the fire cut road. After a medium branch within the first 500 feet I turned around and decided to walk. Nothing too serious in the road until well after a mile, but for with my decision. Got the field and went up to the benchmark which has a split rail fence around it. Seems to be active logging of some kinds happening. First time going down to a high point except maybe a coast or national monument one (fort Moutrie perhaps).
