Sat, Feb 17 2018 - Hike the Wagon Train Trail to Brasstown Bald (View Original Event Details)|
|Participants:||Chuck R, Ken, Pamela, Lisa, Alice Edwards, Steve Edwards, Peter Williamson, Bob J, Charles, Jeff Gimpel|
Our day started with 10 hikers all ready for the weather. We hit the trail immediately
hiking to a steep incline to Double Knob where we stopped to shed a layer and regroup.
Then we were off to Chimney Top Mountain. Before our summit, we had a fantastic view
of Young Harris, Ga to our right ( only viewed at winter). Once past Chimney Top, we
were welcomed with high winds and thick fog setting the stage for the final summit! Our
group then stopped and re- layered for the conditions that were ahead. Once we made
it to our destination we took lunch ( The Chuck Wagon). After chow we turned our
Wagons around back for the settlement of Young Harris. I think everyone deserves a
gold medal for The Wagon Train Olympics. I'm gonna give a "that a girl" to Lisa S. and
Alice E. for a big comeback on the hike Steve E. for the heavy pack and Ken S. for a full
recovery from his past I njury. Chuck R. Wagon Team Leader!
