Ascent Trip Report

This is our 23rd DAY OF OUR 36 DAY TRIP,"MARITIMES 2013".

We left NB and drove to PEI, stopping at the Tourist information Centers of NB & PEI at the Confederation Bridge across the Northumberland Strait, after which we moved on to Prince County HP, following the directions in Greg Slayden's TR.

I agree with the conclusion in Greg Slayden's TR, however I must say that the two areas in question are within 2-3 feet .... In fact the Google Topo Map shows hwy #232 just touching the 110 foot contour, telling me (if correct) that Micheal's spot was probably "the" HP prior to the red house's (#1767) construction.

We first went to the yellow house (#1769) and found no-one home before going to the red house (#1767). The very friendly lady of the house, Tara, with her 2 young tots had no problem with me walking out to the HP.

See Greg's TR for the driving directions. On to the PEI National Park HP.
