Ascent Trip Report

Well, this was fun. Needed to be in Columbus for a meeting, but thought I would try and tag this. I ran out of time a few years ago when I tagged the Ohio State Highpoint. I went directly to Hoosier Hill from my trip from Philly, and got there at 9pm. Prior to getting there I scoped out Preble County HP in Ohio. Looked easy. Marked it for tagging on the way back, when it was darker.

Found the sign for the IN highpoint easy enough. But it was getting VERY dark. Knew the actual highpoint was in the back of the field an using Andrew Krimse's awesome new Peakbagger app, I was able to negotiate the muddy field and stumble around the woods where the actual highpoint was. Tagged, and off to some county highpoints, at NIGHT!
