Ascent Trip Report

I mapped the Whidbey Island highpoint on google maps. Drove over to the general area and did some zigging and zagging to find the right road. Ended up on the stretch of road with forest on the one side, a grassy field on the other, and a farm down the road (and down in elevation). I walked out onto the field to what seemed to be the highest rise in the not very dramatic topography, and according to the map where the "peak" should be. I'm pretty sure I was on the high point, but I wouldn't swear to it. I then drove over to Mt. Erie and climbed that, which was a real climb.
