Ascent Trip ReportDrove around Edgecombe and grabbed the easy highpoints just off Arlington Street and Tarboro Road, then went over to 301 where we parked at a storage area to grab the "red circle." I crossed over 301, the railroad tracks (if you are a railfan, the rail yard just north of here is awesome) and into the fields. Went to the one yellow circle and which was basically slightly higher than the rest of the area, then went south for the "red circle." CREEPY. Aside from the nearly impenetrable thicket and standing water, I popped out of the brush to find a scene from a bad Hollywood horror flick. The house (or rather, houses) looked abandoned. I hope they were abandoned. I quickly gave up any idea of asking for permission and bisected the field and hoped I hit the high point. Since this was the "red" and I was trying to get to vacation, I will have to get the rest at a later date.
