Ascent Trip Report

We headed out to the beach today on Lake Michigan (Kohler-Andrae SP) and hit the highpoint of Sheboygan County on the way. It's a pleasant drive up the Kettle Moraine Scenic Road to get here. Lot's of rolling hills in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. From the top you can ascend a 60' tower to get an even better look at the area. There was a great view of the Moulin Kames from the top (conical looking hills) by looking to the west. To the south you can see Holy Hill the Washington County HP (as long as it's clear). This was a very enjoyable COHP summit.
