NPOTA Activation of the Blue Ridge Parkway PK01

This is my first time activating a National Park.  I had my K1, inverted L on a tripod, a lithium iron phospate battery. The antenna is an end fed Par 10-20-40 resonant on those bands.  I stayed on 20m band on 14040 kHz the whole time.  The noise floor was low - made 27 QSOs very quickly.  This is good for a first time out in 27 degree weather in the mountains.  The Blue Ridge Parkway was iced over in the high elevations but the Visitor Center was open.
