Stevens County High Point Trip Report

Six distinct hillocks, all on same N-S ridge, in abandoned range land, in an active gas field. I numbered the hills as follows:

1. isolated hill on top of defined ridge in sec 14
2. ill-defined north edge of a u-shaped depression in sec 23
3. well defined hill west of 2
4. well defined hill, road and new gas line going over summit
5. hill south of 4 in sec 27
6. isolated hill in sec 26

Hand-leveling and back-sighting from each hill determines that 4 ("yucca hill") and 1 are probably the HPs. A new gasline was being trenched just west of hill #1 which is a drive-up. By the way CR F extends along the south line of sec. 22 and 23 although it's only a rough sandy lane. Also note that CR 2 extends north for 1/2m from the se corner of sec. 22 so you can drive up to hills 2 and 3. Very isolated and lonely country; this is what HPing is all about!
