Ascent Trip Report

This is Day 1 of our "60 Day Winter Trip 2019" - delayed somewhat because of other priorities.
The plan is to county high point in KY, followed by AR before moving on to Texas - where after county high pointing we will pay a visit to our son Michael and his beautiful wife Celine.
I have 17 outstanding Texas County High Points - the main challenge being Chinati Peak (Presidio County).

On-route today we stopped on the side of the highway to check out this high point.
Driving westbound on I-90, Rose and I parked on the northside at 6.5 miles west of the NY/PA State Line (at a large Highway Sign "PA 531/Erie/Cleveland").
I scrambled up the steep embankment (25 yds) on the northside pf the highway and hopped over the fence to the HP at 6 yds (42.17466,-79.84537). All open woods.
Less than 10 minute stop.
