Ascent Trip Report

The 7th HP on this eight day, ten state highpoint trip (IL, WI, MI, MN, ND, SD, NE, KS, OK & IA). We used Google Maps to find this HP, as our Garmin had nothing on this. No issues finding it, but you'll be out in the middle of nowhere. Make sure you have a full tank of gas, as we traveled south out of here towards the Kansas HP and it seemed like we were on dirt roads forever. The cool thing about this area is that it's not only covered in wind power farms, you are driving through an area that contains dozens of US nuclear missile silos. They are not identified by signage, but are surrounded by a razor wired chain linked fence, Some of them are located within 100 feet of the road. This is the HP that's out on a flat plain and has a buffalo heard roaming on it. Heed the warnings that are listed on the signs as you enter and you'll have no issues. HP #34 including DC.
