Ascent Trip Report

Perkins County sits near the crook where the northeast corner of Colorado juts into Nebraska. Unlike Dundy and Chase counties, the sand hills take a break here. The county is flat and featureless. Its highpoint(s) are along its western boundary, and handful of 3,645-foot contours spaced along the dirt road separating the two states.

From the town of Venango inside Nebraska, I followed NE-23 north, then west, and at the state line, turned right (north) onto the dirt road. The first area is six miles up this road, two more come at 12.2 miles, and the last area at 14.8 miles. In each case, I got out, looked around, stepped on the Nebraska side of the road, and tried in vain to sense any rises. Truthfully, it all looked the same to me.
