Ascent Trip Report

Don't expect to feel very satisfied with this highpoint visit. The entire area looks like it is exactly at the same elevation. There is no way to really know where the highest point is actually located. This area is in a densely populated residential district. I drove my car as close to the GPS coordinates as I could and it showed the highpoint to be in someone's backyard. I actually got permission to access their backyard, but it took a bit of explaining what I was doing this for, which is sometimes hard to figure out for myself! Anyway, I stood on the exact GPS coordinates, but both of the neighbor's yards looked just as high. City highpoints like this do not make a lot of sense. This activity really demonstrates how obsessive I really am!
