Ascent Trip ReportCoHP – McCOOK COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA
Like prior visitors, we left Minnehaha and made our next stop in nearby McCook County. When we arrived in the area, the high ground was clearly seen south of 247th St.
We were heading west on 247th St., and we drove a bit past the high ground to arrive at the gate mentioned in the Ken Oeser report. The gate was closed, but it was chained with a lock that was open. So it was easy enough for the two of us to maneuver the lock and open the gate. We then headed SE up a herd path to the obvious highest ground. We tagged every high spot of interest and returned the way we came. We closed the gate but left the chain and lock as we had found them.
We could have pursued other HPs. However, Fred and I both agreed to head back to Worthington. I needed to arrange lodging, and Fred had to meet his roommate, Mike Schwartz.
