Mt. Mitchell Ascent

18 of us made the attempt up Mt. Mitchell. It’s December and the weather was warmer than expected, and what was forecasted. The leaves blanketed the first half of the trail up. It was a little slippery, and made for a difficult run down the mountain.

As we reached the summit, the temperature dropped close to 25 degrees from the start. The wind had picked up which made it feel colder. We took a break, ate some food at the summit, and then headed back down. It was nice to take a small break and leisurely hike up and enjoy the mountain.

Coming down the mountain I began to feel sick, and developed a hacking cough.
