Ascent Trip Report

Wow! A high point and 100% completion of a Peakbagger list within 2 hours of landing on US territory. It was a Saturday so no problems parking in the Wilson High School parking lot rather than on the street and working out how to use the parking meters.

An easy stroll in an ENE direction towards Deal Junior High School keeping E of the fort/ reservoir complex up over the recently mown grass to the 2007 larger-than-average benchmark embedded in the ground at the obviously highest natural area. The benchmark labels the hill as "Point Reno" rather than Reno Reservoir. We then circumnavigated the higher but man-made fenced off compound to make sure we'd 'done' the high point. The start of my son's week-long post-exam Washington DC, Fallingwater and East Coast Highpoints tour.
