Ascent Trip Report

Prominence county HP. Parked half way up. Changed from suit and tie into hiking clothes for the day and walked down past the formal flower gardens to the intersection of Sheridan and 49th then walked up past the flowers and up into the field until found HP. Some view off the plateau but not the type of view you expect in the area and in the drizzle was not a great "summit"...I hiked around the backside took a photo and headed back to the car and off to do a County HP next. Plenty of parking at 4:30 PM but the traffic getting there was pretty bad.
