Ascent Trip Report

I backtracked west into Grant County, then discovered I had left my map behind. I would have to go from memory. I knew the highpoint was at the northwest corner of the county. I drove to the western edge of the county and then followed Road A north and south, getting out at any crest along the road. However, Road A does not go all the way to the northwest corner.

To get to the northwest corner meant a detour of nearly 20 miles. Finally, I passed into Grant County at its northwesternmost point, then drove a half-mile to a rise, this being the presumptive county highpoint. Only later, when I returned to Kenton, was I able to verify I had been to the correct spot.

The signs on the fencing on both sides of the road were emphatic about no trespassing, promising all sorts of bad things to those who dare, but I stuck to the public rights-of-way.
