Nice trip report LD thanks for sharing! Really liked the pics at the look out, on the other hand the Hilton was a bit creepy.
Glad you got to do do some healthy gear testing.
I hike with SCISSORS cause it makes me feel dangerous ... LoL
That looks like a fun, productive (gear testing) trip. Glad you're getting to know your mountain. Thanks for sharing.
Looked like a nice trip to test that packa of yours. I got caught in the same storm fishing this weekend. Made for an interesting hike down the mountain back to the car.
Very nice report Cakes. I'll have to make it over there soon. I might have to pass on the Holston Hilton though!
