Route Climbed: from the old farmstead Date Climbed: Sept. 4, 2005
Well, I followed the excellent directions from this very website and easily found the top of the high point of N.D. But I did get lost trying to find my way out and accidently drove down several farm roads that dead ended or went on forever through wheat fields. Finally I met another driver on a road who couldn't find the "trail head". I was able to show him the way and in so doing I found the way out.
It was a lovely wind-swept top of the state. Thanks to the owners for allowing acess.
This one was nice once I got to the top. Otherwise, it caused me some anxiety. First, I couldn't find it. Then the $20 (which, in retrospect, was worth it). Then the wind. Then my car got stuck in the white mud. Finally, I fear snakes. Especially poisonous ones! Still, the view was good, the isolation was interesting, and the sense of accomplishment is ever-present when highpointing.
