Rooks County High Point Trip Report

Date: March 1, 1998
Author: Dave Olson

I drove north, past Ellis to Palco KS, and started looking for the 8 HP areas of Rooks county (2,310+ ft). I started at the northwest corner of Palco, where the railroad no longer runs, down an overgrown access road into a gulch, 50 feet up the other side and cross the fence to the HP area in a Winter Wheat field. The 2nd area, heading southwest, was medium sized. A residence seemed to sit on the very highest point. I managed that as best as I could. Most of the remaining areas were fallow ground, of little note.
