Ascent Trip ReportCoHP – UNION COUNTY, INDIANA
The sun was setting, and the day was almost gone. But nearby Union County only has one contour, so it was worth it to try and reach the county to add another green to my list.
I arrived on the scene with not a moment to waste. Out at 5:37 and back at 5:56, I could see my truck as I was atop the high contour but not when I hiked back to it. From my parking spot along the road, I hiked a round trip of 0.83mi to reach the noticeable HP bump. I hiked NNW toward the obvious high ground and found it to be quite broad once I got there. So I did the back-and-forth dance step, wandering over the contour 3 times to satisfy myself that the high ground had been crossed. Recalling a fence to the east of the hill, I hiked without light to reach it. I hiked back south to the road to find my truck and count another county as done.
