Ascent Trip ReportDid this as a half-day side trip from Chicago. Arrived at the house and met Mrs. Yates, who seemed less familiar with the whole county highpoint thing than her husband, but was nevertheless equally friendly. She did, however, tell me they did not own the adjacent farm fields to the south, and invited me to wait inside while she called her mother to inquire who did. She at last returned and simply told me to go ahead, and after thanking her, I did.
The whole affair likewise took me about 30 minutes for all four spots. I feel like the spot elevation of 915' or the small crest of farmland just to the southwest were the most likely highest spots, but visit all to be sure. Nice views by Indiana standards on this cool, sunny November day.
