Ascent Trip ReportTwo and a half days in Columbus and I thought I would get about 4-6 county highpoints in. Then I hit Franklin County. Spent over 2 hours trying to find all the candidates, which are close, but it still took longer than I expected. My hotel was only a few miles away. But it is done.
If you attempt this, November is a good time of the year. No crops, and the brushy areas are not bad (I bet they are rough in the spring/summer). In the late afternoon, no-one appeared to be at home, though I did see a person walking her dog who queried me attempting to cross between two candidates. I explained that I was looking for the High Point of Franklin County. She said "Franklin County is flat. It doesn't have a high point." I looked around and really couldn't argue with her.
