Ascent Trip Report

I drove up to the farm complex just northeast of the highpoint, but I couldn't find anyone except a dog and a cat. I drove back out onto 610th Avenue on the county line and parked at the road crest next to a rock pile. I think the farm fields are all pretty rocky around here. I saw a Bobcat driving around in the field to the northwest of me, and I thought this may be the land owner. He didn't notice me, and I didn't feel like waiting so I jogged up to the summit and back in just a few minutes with one summit photo. The crops were just poking out of the ground so it was easy to see where the highest ground was. The view is similar to Faribault County Highpoint right down the road.
