Ascent Trip Report

Pretty foggy morning. I drove through Stanton and didn't see the world's largest Swedish Coffee Cup, although I wanted to. I turned left on 130th Ave for one mile. I turned right on P Ave and there was a man on an ATV at the house that's basically at the highpoint. We waved, but then he zoomed off and even though I was parked near the driveway he never reappeared. The highest spot is just a grassy flank on the west side of the road where the NE corner of a field meets this man's yard. The county was simplified by LiDAR analysis. My results follow. If you would like metadata, let me know. Area 5 clearly wins with no other points within the margin of error of 2.42'.
