Ascent Trip Report

Staying on US-69, Bob and I drove to the town of Kingston, north of Greenville, and followed FM-903 west and south about 3.5 miles to County Road 1103. We followed CR-1103 west about a mile, staying straight at the first junction and staying left at a second junction (staying on the main track). We parked due south of the highpoint, marked by an old school bus in a field.

We walked to this highpoint by crossing the fence, walking north across a field, then hopping a second fence near the school bus. We were definitely on high ground but it was a berm near a watering hole, so it was probably artificially built up when the ranchers dug out the water hole. So far we were three for three. Rains County was up next.
