Ascent Trip ReportA road and pasture land walk to 2 areas .... 1.8 miles, 45 minutes RT.
From Palestine we traveled north on Hwy#19 to the village of Montalba, where we continued a short distance north to a right turn on CR455, .25 miles east we turned left on CR453 at a T-Junction, 1.5 miles north turned right on CR452, .68 miles northeast parked the van at a gated road on the right with a large sign "McAtee Realty Co, tel. 903-675-5658". This was my TH.
AREA 2 .... I slinked under the gate and walked the paved road south 200 yards to where it makes a left-bend to the northeast and climbs (becomes dirt) to the HP of AREA 2 at .4 miles from the TH ..... a Hunter's Tower is to the right, the HP is to the left at 10 yards inside the woods, my GPS 31.92557,95.71661, open with views.
AREA 1 .... I continued on the dirt road easterly 250 yards to a fence corner on the right, I stayed straight for another 75 yards to a gate on the right where I could see (through the trees) grazing land to the south. I crawled under the gate walked south 500 yards to the high ground in the open grass land (about .5 miles from Area 2) ...... nothing obvious, in fact doesn't feel like a summit, I chose my spot at GPS 31.92263,-95.71156, 30 yards east is a north-south line of pine trees.
"THE SUN ABOVE IS BIG AND BRIGHT
THE PRAIRIE SKY IS WIDE AND HIGH
THE SAGE IN BLOOM IS LIKE PERFUME
DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS."
