Ascent Trip ReportI must admit I probably can't claim this highpoint as an actual visit, since my son, Marshall, and I respected the landowner's unmistakable posted signage with its threats of prosecuting trespassers hanging from a padlocked barbed wire gate. From the road it is less than 500 feet to this highpoint, so it is more than a "stone's throw," and probably shouldn't be counted unless you're willing to take a chance and trespass. I suppose, if I ever get to the completion point in my Colorado county pursuit, I will feel the need to return to this spot and officially bag this highpoint, but until then, I choose to stay out of jail!
