Ascent Trip Report

This was the only one of the six cornfield county high points I did today that actually felt like even a minor high point. Slightly less than 2 mi. nw (as the GPS flies) from the last of McDonough County I parked at a small turn into a field off 10th (street? road?). I walked along a row of trees up, down , and up a noticeable slope (actually 50+ feet of total elevation gain on this one mile walk according to GPS).
