Slightly less flat  Sucess!

Nice diversion on the drive to Colorado. I didn’t know about the suggestion to leave the owner a beer until I was already there empty handed.

Mount Sunflower  Sucess!

We were glad it hadn't rained so we had no issues driving our rental car out to the highpoint. We parked at the bottom of the final stretch and walked.

Nice winter trot  Sucess!

Gate was closed because of the heavy snow, so walked over to the high point. Had to clear some of the snow to grab a picture, but worth it.

Successful Summit  Sucess!

Drove the Magic Bus to the summit on this one. Great time. Middle of nowhere!!!

Highpoint # 36  Sucess!

Flew to Denver, spent the night in Burlington, CO, then visited Mount Sunflower the next morning. Directions made it easy to find. Highpoint # 36 for me.

Dusty Road  Sucess!

Came down from I-70 @ exit 1. Dusty road but not much washboarded. Shorter drive on gravel down to US-40 - would recommend coming and going that way.

Well marked, but in the middle of nowhere  Sucess!

It's down a dirt road about 10 miles in the middle of miles of corn fields. Nice place.

Way Up High There's a Land that I Heard of Once in a Lullaby.  Sucess!

After being chased off of private property attempting to do a county high point in Colorado earlier in the day, this was a lovely consolation prize. State high point number six for me! Mount Sunflower was a beautiful place to be, isolated from other folks during a global pandemic.

Vortex of Solitude   Sucess!

Nothing but peace at this highpoint!

What a fun Highpoint  Sucess!

The owners of this highpoint do a great job of making it fun. I enjoyed it.

just drove right up  Sucess!

The way was well-marked. Highpoint is on private property. Bring a beer and leave it in the register box for the landowner.

Trying to get Divorced   Sucess!

Landed in Denver for a week vacation in Estes Park, and I was like, let's take a small 6-hour roundtrip detour to Kansas. Wife and family were not happy. Fun times though!

HP #15!  Sucess!

Took advantage of a delayed flight and made the day drive from Denver to nab this state highpoint.

Farmlands, fields, crops... however you want to describe this HP. I enjoyed it though!
