Washington County High Point Trip Report

Date: August 5, 2003

This was a scouting trip only, since it was almost 8 p.m., there were thunderstorms in the area, and I saw a black bear cross the road two miles before. The northernmost point is somewhere in a cornfield - impossible to find now, would be easy in the winter. The other two points are off a gravel road. It was posted, but only to hunters and fisherman without permits.

The area is planted tall pine forest with six foot, fairly light underbrush. Ground was firm. Ticks were plentiful. My 50 yard scouting walk netted me a dog tick and a dear tick. This county is better down after the first hard frosts.
