|Peak:||Hale County High Point|

Ascent Trip ReportHale county's highpoint is within a 3,620-foot contour in the county's northwest corner. I came here via highways TX-194 northwest out of Plainview and FM-2881 from Edmonson. I followed a couple of dirt roads and came to the highpoint from the north, then followed a sketchier road east about 500 feet, putting me within the highpoint area.
In heavy wind and blowing dust, I opened my door and stuck my foot out. That's all I did. A bloated dead cow lay along the side of the paved road. From here I went into Lubbock to get a new set of front tires after my flat, ate a lunch, then drove south a lot more to visit Southwest Mesa in Crockett County before my long drive back home.
