Ascent Trip Report

A drive up to a Water Tower.

We had some time to spare so we searched the PB Library for Peaks in the North Little Rock area and this one came up, so decided to pay a visit. From I40, exit 135, west of North Little Rock, we drove east on 89 for 4.3 miles to a left on Clinton Road, 3.5 miles right on Grand Trunk Road, 2 miles right on Moran Road, .75 miles left on Tower Road, .3 miles to the summit's flat ridge ....... at the new Saltillo Water Tower presently being painted, the present high ground is across the Tower on the south side of the road. I looked-for and asked 2 workers for the benchmark with no luck.

"I'VE LEARNED THAT YOU CAN KEEP DOING THE CLIMBING YOU WANT TO DO ..... LONG AFTER OTHERS THINK YOU'RE TOO OLD."
