Ascent Trip Report

Followed previous instructions. There's a microwave tower above the oil or gas well now. This spot is obviously higher than the other candidate. Indeed, by the standards of flat western Kansas it's a real hill visible form some distance off. The other minor excitement was a large jackrabbit than ran in front of my car at 25 mph for a mile or more. Didn't know these critters could run so fast or far; looked like he was training for a marathon.
