Dorchester County Highpoint Trip Report
one area (60+ ft)

Glenn Bock questions the existence of a 60-foot contour on the Federalsburg quad, but my photocopy
clearly shows the small contour adjacent to the east end of the longest chicken shed.
Like Mike Schwartz, I walked across the field, which is apparently going to be left fallow this year.
The ground at the east end of the shed was clearly 2 or 3 feet higher than the adjacent field,
so it's not a depression contour that we're looking at.
The high ground appears to be right up against the shed. Whether it's a natural surface or has
been raised slightly during the construction of the shed is another question,
one that I can't shed any light on.
The exhaust fans were running full blast on this warm day,
and the odor added to the ambiance of this CoHP. I didn't have chicken for lunch.
