Ascent Trip Report

The 10th HP on this eight day, ten state highpoint trip (IL, WI, MI, MN, ND, SD, NE, KS, OK & IA). A very well done highpoint experience on a former family farm. There are several 4x4 posts that contain directional signage to each of the other state highpoints as well as a mini museum of early farm implements. The board containing vehicle license plates from all 50 states as well as DC was cool. We were there in the beginning of August, and the view from the platform that is attached to the old corn silo was very reminiscent of the "Field of Dreams" movie. The only thing missing was a ball field. This is our last drive up highpoint, as everything that remains will require a bit more effort. HP #37 including DC.
