Ascent Trip Report

From US 56 we took a dirt road north half a mile to a spot 0.2 mi. east of the high point. The road signs at the turnoff from the highway read "mile 3"on the south side and "74 34 3.50" on the north side. Despite the drought parched landscape the road was muddy from a recent rain. I found the USGS witness marker. GPS coordinates put the high point a few feet southeast of the marker but the marker looked like the high spot to me.
