Laclede County High Point Trip Report
Date: November 17, 2002
This is a tougher one, as two of the areas are 30 miles from the other two.
Approach the eastern areas from the junction of 32 & 95 in Lynchburg. Go south 1.0 west from Lynchburg
on 95 to open meadow. This is spot #1, right at south edge of road. It levels lower than #2, which is sort of
visible to the west, although there are trees in the way, but the trees look to be much higher. Hard to say.
Continue to #2 at mile 1.6 mile, HP is on west side of road approximately 20 feet into woods across from
orange cable marker.
I then drove 30 miles west on O & J to Conway. Highpoint #3 is 1.2 mile south of Conway from J & CC on CC.
It is 100 feet west of the road at the stone gate edge of the front of a large house. Just walk to the gate
and back to the car.
For #4 go 2.7 mile north on CC from Conway along the interstate frontage road. Pull into a lane for a tower area.
It has a wire gate across it, so park and walk south 1/4 mile up to tower. HP area is to the east of the clearing,
through short woods, and on the other side of a very stout fence. With permission, cross under the fence,
and wander in an open, very flat pasture field. No sign at all of BM Bateman.
I say the HP is at the old house, but you gotta visit all 4.
