Ascent Trip ReportState HP #24 for me!
My THIRD in one day! (2nd time I’ve done 3 in ONE day!)
Another drive up high point. Make sure to pay your $3 fee to the metal box at the gate.
Once you drive up a bumpy gravel/grass road (which I did in a Ford Fusion...scraping the bottom a couple times), you’ll reach the peak, which has a tall, metal desk (with the log book and lots of random stuff in it), official HP’ers bench and short, cement monument that says it was erected in 1971.
It was quite windy the day I went. Otherwise, it was sunny and pleasant.
There is a fence around the area to keep the bison away from you and your car. Depending on your luck, they might be close by. For me, they stayed back at the trailhead where I paid my $3.
