Ascent Trip Report

Split over 2 days (12/8 & 12/9). On 12/8:

#1 - Simple park on the side of the road and walk in to the field to the obvious high point. Did it in the dark: 5:58pm - 6:02pm.

#2 - Similar, simple park on the side of the road and walk in to the field to the plotted high point. Did it in the dark: 6:16 - 6:23pm.

On 12/9:

#4 - Forgot to turn the GPS on. I drove up the driveway to the house and saw the "private property" sign in the window and turned around. The high point is in the driveway, so I didn't need to go any place else.

#3 - Rather than approach from the residence, I drove around to the cell tower in the rear and walked the field from there. The high point is actually just behind the rear barn. 10:49am - 10:42am.
