Ascent Trip Report

Of all the high points I had planned for today (11) this one had me the most concerned in terms of running into an angry land owner. It turned out to be one of the easier ones. I parked in the Ocean State Transit lot. I looked at the possibility of walking along the south side of the lot fence as others have done, but it looked like I'd be walking right through somebody's yard. So I went to plan B. I walked to Austin Farm Rd. and took a right. I then took a right behind the storage place/garden center. I walked to the edge of the woods, over a stone wall, and through some initial scrub that wasn't too bad. I had long pants and a long sleeve shirt on. Nothing had really started to grow in yet either. I made my way to the GPS coordinates being careful not to get too close to any homes. Made it to the junk pile, found a spot my GPS and I were happy with, and got out of there. Quite easy if you ask me. No barking dogs either, just some vicious sounding roosters. ;)
