Ascent Trip ReportAlready had a Denver->>St Louis->>Chicago drive planned for January and its a relatively short side trip from Alton, IL to this "new" area. Parked at the hunters parking lot on powerline road and walked up. Mostly field, brushy with and thorns at the high ground. Cold, Windy, maybe 4 inches of snow. I remember the Jersey Co water tower from 2001, but definitely did not visit this newly located point then. Nice job by Doug finding this. So this completes the county HPs of Illinois a second time for me.
