Ascent Trip Report

On our way to the airport we added on ten minutes of driving from Rochester to MSP to visit this highpoint. Two miles from the highpoint we drove past a semi tractor that had backed up too far and had its rear wheels hanging over the roadside ditch and was stuck. For the hike we parked at the field road just NE of the highpoint and walked through 2-6" of snow in 6 degree F weather SW to the top. There were good views and sunny skies. Glad to get this one completed to get some red off my map, to get another Mississippi River county, and to get my 50th county of the year. There was a semi trailer for sale at the field turnout as well.
