McClain County High Point Trip Report

I used John Garner's trip report, and found it useful. However, I pulled up into the driveway of the nice house on the east side of the farm maintenance barn John mentions. It is new. Mr. and Mrs. Ricky Walker greeted me. After granting permission to hit the hp, they pointed out that the house is new, the former home site just west (nearer the "barn") having been cleared by a tornado. Perhaps that's why John mentions no house. Nice folks; they said I was the 3rd cohper they knew of.

By the way, the "NW 6th St." sign is missing -- blown away? I agree with John that the highpoint is probably the further site from the barn, though do get the berm and fence lines just northeast of the barn to be sure.

My GPS agreed with the map coordinates: (35° 15' 20" N, 97° 40' 2" W).
