Ascent Trip Report

Followed yellow trail from Jackie Jones Tower. Got a little confused at final turn up to Shelter as I didn’t see the yellow marker so consulted my GPS and bushwhacked up the backside to the shelter. It was full of everyone’s trash. Not good. But it taught me that a straight line in the GPS might be shorter but not sweeter and to stop and look for that marker (it had been a very long day st this point). Anyhow, it also led me to a geocache and the true summit of Big Hill and some delish wild blueberries. Viewed NYC...very overcast and obscured by trees. The view was better when here last Christmas. Took the yellow trail back or an easy exit!
