Ascent Trip Report

I visited two CA/USA Boundary Monuments highpoints on this trip, 500.15 and 503.4. Read the "Boundary 503.4" TR for the full details of today's outing.

At the entrance to the CA/USA Boundary Line, swath in the woods, I turned left, eastbound and straight ahead about 250M I could clearly see the highpoint area, a tall Hunter's Shooting Tower to its left. A well used grass track on the Boundary Line led the way, a short 5 minute ascent.

My GPS coordinates read the obvious highpoint as 45.23309,71.38546. On both sides of the Boundary Line was the orange Survey Marker 500.15.
