Ascent Trip Report

Corn fields free of corn; public park; and race track views; finally easy access to the agriculture land and better a public park at another candidate point. Check out the county museum at the park - pretty nice for a small rural county museum with history on the Indians and settlers in the region. There is very short (like 3 feet tall) chain link fence separating the offsite lands from the public park where the HP is near the county park but I saw no signs where I crossed. On the way back I did encounter a sign. Oooops

I hiked around for exercise and enjoyed some fresh air in the park.
