Ascent Trip Report

At least this HP is along a remote road and corn field so I was not embarrassed to park along the shoulder and run up from the low point to give me some extra steps on my pedometer to close out the day. Of course, at least 2 cars stopped to see if I was OK and I thanked them and said yes, but did not bother to tell them that big hump near the top of the road was a county HP. In a flat state like FL they may have been impressed but in the land of tall mountains, I chose to simply thank them and run back to my car.
