Payne County Highpoint Trip Report

I-35 exit 170, then east on a good gravel road for 5.2 miles to a gravel driveway. I turned down this driveway and drove a short distance to a house. I made contact with homeowner, Mark Anderson, who was very distrustful of me. He stated that he preferred his wife Lisa accompany me the 0.25 mile from their house to the BM. I agreed, wondering why he trusted me to walk in the woods with his wife rather than with him or alone.

Lisa was pleasant and we stopped halfway up the hill to pet their friendly horses. Lisa knew where the BM was located and we were back at my car after 10 minutes. I thanked her for her trouble and left.
