Ascent Trip Report

After arranging my visit with SFC Charles LaFlame of Plans & Training at Camp Edwards (508-968-5691), I was met by gate guards and SFC LaFlame at the main gate at 1PM and followed him, his vehicle leading to our roadside parking. A short walk up to the highpoint and benchmark was followed by his suggestion to walk back across the road to (an alternate county highpoint candidate and former Mobile Radar Station) Wheelock Hill with its outstanding, distant views across Buzzard's Bay, a just barely seen view today. Kudos to SFC LaFlame for his duty, help and support.
