Ascent Trip ReportFollowed Edward's directions easily to the area of the high point. Did not find the benchmark though I investigated in all directions and was within 25 yards of the recorded UTM location. My highest GPS elevation was 4245, within nine feet of the recorded elevation and I did not see higher ground on my travels.
There are numerous occupied residences in the area. Because the road with some gravel is now posted at various places, I inquired with a friendly neighbor for permission and he indicated that a new owner, who apparently has the higher ground, has over-reached with his postings since only a small portion of the better road crosses his property. My searching tended to contour slightly downhill from the plateau in order to not be visible from the area I supposed to be occupied by the unfriendly owner. I circled a relatively new well-maintained barn near the highpoint coordinates and did not see any benchmark or other notable markings.
