Ascent Trip Report

You can't ask for a much easier county highpoint. My son, Marshall, and I tried to ask permission from the landowner, since there was a prominent benchmark monument in the front yard, but no one was home, so we invited ourselves to the obvious landmark, however, we discovered that this was only a directional disc. It pointed directly to the east along a fence row, which we walked beside about 50 yards to the actual Painter Benchmark located about 2 feet inside the fence. The field this benchmark was located in was quite flat, so it was hard to understand how this spot was selected as the highest point.
