CoHP, Not  Sucess!

I visited this one when I thought it was a CoHP. Later I found the CoHP group and learned the truth. At least it was a CoGPP. A local told me about a "secret" access to a summit road, through a farmers pasture.

On a CoGPP trip  Sucess!

Did this one with Bob Bolton. Rainy and depressing but found where the benchmark and witness markers were. Only a person chasing the CoGPP's would be interested in this one, otherwise,
forget it.

While at work...sort of.  Sucess!

At the base of the peak is Frances....where I've spent several different weeks in work trainings as a forester for the DNR. Each evening, after classes were done I would do some dumpster diving. Arrived at this summit just after dark one night and the lookout tower was quite spooky in the fog and my cars headlamps.

Walville  Sucess!

We were stopped at the road washout which happened during December 2007. Bummer. Oh well, so we walked the old ridge top road and got to better road and then that was that.

Three CoGPPs In One Day!  Sucess!

This was the first of three CoGPPs reached in a single-day that involved a lot of driving and road-hiking. The ridge walk is pleasant, and it was interesting to see the USGS Benchmark and remnants of debris at the summit. I just wish there were views from the summit area, but surrounding thick forests now prevent outward views.
