Ascent Trip Report

I drove in to Iowa on Addison Avenue and stopped at the house at the intersection with 25th St. No one was home but there was a man working on his manure spreading equipment just south of there so I went and waved him down. He said it was not problem for me to walk out into the field. Thankfully he hadn't gotten to drive over the highpoint as of yet. He also called up his neighbor who owned Howard County's highpoint and gave him the heads up that I would be over there next. I went and parked back at the house, then went into the field on the north end of the yard. I walked SW towards the top, crossing one field boundary. The high ground wasn't super obvious, but I did my best. LiDAR results follow:
