Ascent Trip Report

We had spent the night in Sidney, Ohio after hitting the Ohio HP the previous evening at Bellefontaine, Ohio. The HP for Indiana is located on back country roads not far from Bethel, Indiana. We came in from the north and followed posted signs to the HP. However, we drove right by the turnoff as someone had stolen the HP sign. We turned around and went back to where I thought the HP should be (based on what we'd read on the internet) and found another car there. We parked the car and walked into a grove of trees where the actual HP was located. There was a couple already there. They were from the area, and in fact, had lived in the area for many years but this was their first visit to the HP. They could not believe we were visiting all the way from Oklahoma! It was enjoyable talking with them. This was our 5th HP of our trip that had started in Oklahoma, going through Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan UP, Ohio, and now Indiana. We were at the end of our vacation and heading home now. HP #13.
