Ascent Trip Report

Xcountry ..... 1 mile, 35 minutes RT.

From Junction of US84/FM612 (northwest of Snyder) at sign "Fluvanna", we drove west on 612 for 5.5 miles to Fluvanna and a right on FM1269, 4.4 miles north arrived at entrance on the left to Price Quarries and Green Mountain Energy Farm. This whole plateau is a forest of Windmills.
The E-W high ground contour is north of this entrance. We parked inside this entrance and walked north xcountry to the contour, then west to the windmills, couldn't find a spot, very flat. (mostly grazing land ... grass and bushes with open areas, easy). I called it good.

We looked-for/found the BM "USC&G Survey FLUVANNA No1, 1968" embedded in a concrete pedestal 400 yards north of the entrance, on right side of road just inside fence (32.95500,-101.14781) Had to crawl under the fence to read it. The Witness Post Survey Marker is at the fence, the Radio Tower shown on the topo is not there.

EACH YEAR AMARILLO, TEXAS, HOSTS THE WORLD'S LARGEST CALF FRY COOK-OFF. "CALF FRIES" ARE BULL TESTICLES. ....... a texas fact.
