Ascent Trip Report

A fun side trip after visiting the Field of Dreams. We parked at the start of the trees on 340th Ave after the farm that appeared abandoned on the left. It was a quick walk along the edge and then into the field of three to four and a half foot corn. It was easy to see a bump that was the highest contour, but it was hard to say what was highest once we were in it. We wandered across the highest looking spots and then went back the way we came. Great views in three directions. The corn will be too high to see where to go in a few weeks.
