Scott County High Point Trip Report

On my way to Big Bend National Park I stopped off at the Scott County high point. The scenic overlook was close to I-20. I couldn't find BM Morton around the lookout tower. The ground to the north (?) of the lookout tower was higher so I took off in that direction and found a sign above a road cut that said that a survey marker was nearby and not to disturb it. However, I could not find the survey marker so I walked around the high ground until I thought I had walked over the high point. The lookout tower looked relatively new so the BM may not be there anymore.
