Pawnee County High Point Trip Report
Date: June 8, 1999
To drive to the Pawnee Co. HP I had to travel a short distance on the Cimarron Parkway.
They had a self service tollbooth that only took correct change.
There are 4 areas to canvas for Pawnee, and I started on the southernmost.
A bunch of young trees obscured the view on the flat area, so I wandered around them.
Next I went to the westernmost area. This was more interesting, with a ruined barn
on the ground a bit south of the HP. This looked like an old pasture, with lots of
fairly big trees in the area. Next I drove over to the area just south of the Turnpike.
You get a good look at the cars whizzing by here. I also walked over the bridge
(manmade) just in case.
The last area is shown with a BM on it. A house is just east of it.
I walked west a bit south of the house, then angled back to the hilltop.
The BM is stamped Meramac 1935 (year), and a witness post is nearby (?).
I was glad to get back to the car and escape from the heat, if only temporarily.
