A Venture into Alston's Playground.
This Plan B turned out to be an A.

Driving Note. The immediate turn to the left after you turn off 85, on to Woods Road, and cross the Cow Catcher, is not obvious. We ended up going straight and making the first left on another forest road. This worked out just fine.

This is a nice area that is currently made much nicer by the abundance of Flora. It's a Poppy Paradise Right now.

We decided that Cove made no sense (no ships were seen), so we've named it Margie's Basin.
Checking at home with Webster (Never liked that show),
Cove =
a level area sheltered by hills or mountains

A couple miles into the hike, the poppies started popping. We lost Karl for extended periods as he wandered in the patches.

The goal on this one became, get to the top of the steepish looking Peak 2358, while seeing who could go in full Tibber mode the longest. Karl's battery died first... He wins.

It was a steep climb to the top of 2358, but man was it worth it. There is probably only a 20 sqft area up there, but it was a perfect perch. The views all around were great. What a vantage point. There are plenty of peaks in this area for people to explore.

I think our route down was slightly better than the one up. We retreated to the Truck in time for Joe to enjoy his Grapefruit Surprise!

A great day to new spots gentlemen!
Thanks for driving Karl
