Ascent Trip Report

So far we had driven over 2,000 miles already in our trip. We had to drive about 370 miles from Charles Mound in IL to Hawkeye Point in Iowa. We didn't get there until around 9:00pm, but luckily the sun was still bright enough to take some photos.

It was pretty easy to find and only about 15 miles off of i90. You can pretty much drive right up to the summit.

I was really impressed with how decorated the summit was. The owners of the farm seemed to be really enthusiastic about welcoming high-pointers to their little slice of Iowa. It was a really fun place to wonder around and stretch out from all the driving.
