Ascent Trip Report

A little more tricky than Branch CHP in that both HPs are just inside private property and much closer to a residence. I parked down the hill on N 1000 E just past "S" Street. These street names are really boring!

I walked up the hill from elevation 1030 (gotta feel that rush of cresting that huge summit!) and the first one is right next to the R/W line so no big deal but the other was a few more feet into a harvested field. I saw nobody home in the house and it was early morning so I walked briskly to the spot and back in under 2 minutes and was back to the street when the idea hit me..why not keep walking up the street and do my first 3-state point and so I did.
