I secured the necessary permission from the Logan owner. We made good time, passing interesting missile
silos along the way and a cow carcass that had been stripped to the bone just north of the trailhead.
We found the gate about 1/2 mile beyond the missile silo and decided to see if we could drive the two-track so that
we could hook up with CR78 to the east on the way out. We came to a draw at around 1/2 mile, at which
point we did not feel comfortable continuing as the road was washed out in many areas.
We parked there and followed the road to the fence on the Weld-Logan county line. We stayed to the right
of this fence, paralleling it to a small ridge described in the guidebook. We then found a pile of cairns but
saw higher ground to the northeast just south of the state line. I got out my new hand level at this point and
looked back at the ridge and a bump to the southeast. I could not tell if they were indeed lower from my
limited experience with a hand level, so we decided to head over to the more distinct bump. This bump is
about 1/2 mile southeast of the hp, with a spot elevation of 4,931 feet. We took a photo there as well for
good measure, then headed back to the cars.
