Ascent Trip Report

Previous trip reports are correct, the trailer is now brown, but I found nobody home and did not look like anyone was residing there. Probably gone elsewhere for the winter. I found two different names on posted signs deterring trespassing. I looked up the phone numbers on my iphone and left a message with one, the other had been suspended by customer request. (probably for winter while gone).
I walked up one of the old roads and then cross county to the highpoint. I was not for sure which hill it was so I went to 3 in the area. The old barn was visible from the hills.
