Ascent Trip Report

The farmhouse on Arthur Road appears to be no longer occupied. We rode up to the second wind turbine to the north and parked. The field here is a mix of many plants, and it didn't look like it could even be harvested. We tried to walk the fence line, but it was mostly burried and tripped us up a few times. The field on the west was oats and easier to move in. The highest point seemed to be on the fence line about 300' passed the turbine road. There were good views in almost every direction. The turbines were awfully noisy and we now understand why farmers don't like them.
