Ascent Trip Report

Another easy corn field. I parked along Copeland Road. I made sure I could start at elevation 1060 to get some hike out of this little CHP. I walked up Copeland and passed the one house. Nobody home and the corn field was vacant and harvested - only tracks and some dead residual plant material. It was a bit chilly and sun was just coming up, so I walked out and tagged the very obvious HP and headed back down to the car. Easy no fuss and no other candidates for once.
