Ascent Trip Report

There are two knobs on either side of the country road about a mile n. of the 412 expressway. No on home at either house. Pretty straighforward field walks. Wet feet; a thunderstorm had ppassed through just minutes before. Statistics are rt for both knobs. Got identical GPS altitude readings on both and both looked the same height to me. Will probably take very accurate LIDAR to decide if one is higher than the other
