Ascent Trip Report

We arrived in the general area of the Red River county highpoint, located just a smidge east of its western county line. From the town of Blossom, we followed FM-1502 northeast about 3 miles to the Red Oak Cemetery, where I parked and rode with Bob in his truck.

We followed the dirt road past the cemetary about a mile, to a point where we were on a north-south stretch of the road next to a small cow pasture. The Red River highpoint is a single area a few hundred feet east of where we were (still inside Lamar county). Cows were in the field, but we mustered up our courage and went in anyway, and they didn't seem to mind. We came to another fence, crossed it and then found a couple distinct humps that agreed with Bob's GPS readings and the map. We returned the way we came in and continued east to Bowie County.
