Ascent Trip Report

I came here with my then girlfriend (now wife) on our way out to Colorado. We also hit Timm's Hill and Panorama Point on the way out and I hit Harney Peak on the way back (Becky flew back). This was a fun road trip (our first), and included some interesting, not to mention snowy, highpoints.

Hawkeye Point is literally at the end of a cow trough in rural NW Iowa. After a quick, cold, and windy stop, we got stuck on the side of the road in the snow on our way out. Fortunately, a friendly Iowan driving a tow truck just happened to be driving by and pulled us out.
