Ascent Trip ReportThis was my 5th visit to Hawkeye Point and it has been fun watching the significant changes that have occurred here through the years. It has grown from a muddy spot in the middle of a cattle feed lot to an entertaining rest area full of interesting attractions. I visited Hawkeye Point this time with my son, Marshall, during our quest to reach the 10 highest "named" summit points in Iowa. Although Hawkeye Point cannot really be called an "ascent," it is one of our favorities with all the fun things to look at, even though it lacks a "lofty" view. It really is worth a visit, even for individuals who would rather be climbing Everest!
