I summited South Carolina on a business trip to Spartanburg. I flew in early and drove up the road to Sassafras mountain, a nice but uninspiring drive. It seemed longer than I thought it would be, but finding Rocky Bottom and road 199 was easy. There was a little bit of snow on the ground but fortunately not enough to get in the way. I got to the parking lot and was the only one there. Imagine that at noon on a weekday in winter! The marker was a little hard to find as it isn't even close to being on the high point in the area. I took a picture at the marker and the highest point and headed back.
