A trip to Le Sueur County from nearby Blue Earth County only takes a couple minutes to complete. Once again, I followed Trapper and Roxanne’s trip report, and I found the area just as it was described.

Shortly after Water Lily Road, I found a place to pull off the road and park. Like others before me, I hiked under the overhead power lines. I hiked along the east edge of the field, which this year was planted in corn. When I reached the field corner near a power line tower, I turned north and hiked to the obvious height of land at the edge of the field.

At this point, I spotted a dirt lane that entered the woods. I followed it for just a little while before I noted what I believe was the highest ground. I had gone slightly too far north, so I strode a few steps SW to then walk over that area. After I had wandered a bit, I then exited the woods and retraced my steps back to my Jeep. It was now around 10am local time, and I had just bagged my first two new HP’s of the trip.
