Ascent Trip Report

Thanks to LiDAR, the four areas have been narrowed down as follows using the cohp.org numbering:
Area 1: 1272’ West of the road.
N42.762414 W91.598676
Area 2: 1260’
N42.725490 W91.5723597
Area 3: 1269’ Front steps of the house.
N42.691574 W91.438221
Area 4: 1275’ Fence line and tree row south of the house.
N42.695358 W91.436931

I visited area 4 at 1275'. LiDAR showed that the 4th evergreen from the road probably the highest ground between it in the fence, however a single cell in the DEM rose slightly higher by the 8th tree with no build-up cells surrounding it like at the 4th. I visited both and it's too close to tell. Interestingly, there is a mailbox being used as a bird house behind the 8th tree.
