We started a little late 10:15 and made it up to the top, it was my girlfriends first mountain climb and we made it up by 1:15, I was impressed! The climb was more than I anticipated at times, but we made it up and down with no incidents. We flew the flag from about 1:30 to 2:30. I think our tardiness threw some people off as some people were surprised that Jefferson ended up being covered. While at the top, I recieved numorous thank-yous and comments of encouragment. I did, however, recieve one confirmed negative reaction consisting of a conversation between two French speaking hikers that pointed at the flag, made a comment and sarcastically laughed. Being a conscientious represenative of our U.S. I did nothing but stare them down, though I felt like chucking a rock at them. I had a great time a Mooseland. :beer:
