Platte County High Point Trip Report
Date: November 17, 2002
This is an easy one, although you need to get permission from the farmer to walk the fields.
From the Buchanan cohp, I went W 1.5 on 116 from V to 20 Road, then south 3.0 miles to Fairview on the right.
The 20 road became King road at the county line. Go 0.1 mile further past Fairview to a crest and a small
pullout for field access on the west side.
With permission walk west into the field about 500 feet and look around. I agree with Dave Olson,
there should not be 2 contour areas, just a single oval shaped one.
Must have been some serious plowing over the years.
It was cut corn stubble, but the rows went east-west, making for easier walking than at Buchanan #1 spot,
which was against the grain, so to speak.
