Ascent Trip Report

From Galveston County Highpoint we found our way to Baytown and traveled north on Hwy #146 to Mont Belvieu in the northwest corner of Chambers County (I10 exit 797, east of Houston).
We turned left (west-southwest) on Winfree Road, in the middle of a huge industrial oil-refinery area, and drove a short distance to a driveway on the right and the gated-entrance of the signed "Texas Brine Co LLC", the whole area is completely fenced-in. ...... the Highpoint is north of here about 200 yards in a wooded area.
I thought of inquiring at the different offices but I believe it would have been a waste of time .... I'd probably would have to go all the way to the CEO located elsewhere (fat chance of that happening).
Today was more of a touristy/points-of-interest-type hurried-day, we visited 6 County Highpoints, with no climbing to speak of. From here we drove north back to The Woodlands and our son's home on 19 Crestone Lane.
I must note here that I did not visit the other highpoint candidates for the different Counties listed in PB, I have no way of measuring their exact elevation and therefore find the exercise somewhat aimless.
