Ascent Trip Report

This was my 4th highpoint and the last one of our 1st highpoint adventure. This highpoint there isn't much to talk about. We decided to drive straight through from Eagle Mountain, Minn. We arrived at Hawkeye Point around 3AM. It was dark but being from Illinois I know what there is to see and that is a lot of cornfields. It was the same around this highpoint. The Iowa mosaic of tile and brick mark the highpoint. There is a platform you can go up to see a better view. One neat thing about this highpoint is they have constructed poles with arrows pointing to all the state highpoints and distances to all. You can drive to the highpoint but being this is on someones farmland we didn't want to disturb anyone at that early hour so we parked along the gravel road and walked maybe 60 yrds to the marker.
