Ascent Trip ReportOur first day of the long weekend trip to WI, MI, and MN had us headed out the door at 4 AM for the flight to MN. I drew up a plan that would get us three of the four highest county high points in Wisconsin and threw in the second highest point in the state and a few other fun things.
Eric, Al and I drove from Minneapolis airport to James Lake in MI (180 miles). Directions on COHP.org got us to the Taylor County High point (1,840) which was a very small ski area above James Lake. Eric went for a run while Al and I explored a bit. It was nice to get out and stretch after that long just sitting around. There wasn’t much of a view, but the area was well maintained, the slopes were cut even in high summer.
