Ascent Trip Report

A visit to my brother in Dallas, Tx, over Christmas and New Year gave a few days over for a highpointing trip. We started out from Dallas heading West, to Amarillo, where we saw the Cadiallc Range. Stayed over night in Dalhart, Tx, from where we started in alpine style with the car next morning. The drive took us first to New Mexico and then back East into Oklahoma. We drove in as closed we could and then hiked, in snow, to the monument on the top. A nice hike in the winter landscape. Some visitors were there before us so we could follow tracks in the snow. Same route back and then into the car going more East.
