SASSAFRAS MOUNTAIN, S.C. - At 3,560 feet elevation, it's the high point of South Carolina. And I climbed it.
You want the truth? OK, but I can't handle the truth. I drove within 0.2 miles of the summit, parked in a huge lot and walked up a decaying asphalt path to the top. The land at the top was recently purchased by the state to protect it from possible development.
The fun came in trying to find a way to the top. Sure, I could have done some advance work and read how to do it on the Internet, but what fun would that have been?
