Coffey County High Point Trip Report

From Lamont, follow Kansas 57 east 4 miles to the Coffey county line, then drive north for 1.5 miles to the road crest at a gate on the right. This is posted "No Hunting without written permission" at the gate. The first area is just across the gate, and the highest area is next to a collapsed barn (shown on topo).

The second area is about 0.5 mile east and can be seen from the first area. I jogged along the edge of the field, crossed a low fence near the second contour, then up to the high area, which happened to be right on top of a groundhog hole. I took clinometer readings from each area, and both read at +0.5 degrees, so I guess both need to be visited to count for now.
