Texas County High Point Trip Report

Date: June 7, 1999
Author: Andy Martin

Having already visited the OK state HP, my first OK county [in the cross-country trip] was Texas. The single area HP is just north of highway 56, and I parked on a dirt road about 1/4 mile north of the HP.

I strolled south across a sandy and grassy field. Did non find BM Elam, but did find a witness sign. Sight level showed I was near the top, but ground is pretty flat. Left a register on top of a rebar at ground level. My standard register was a state list, inside a plastic bag, rolled into a soda can with the lid cut off. Extra cans were procured from the side of the road as needed - the beer cans are not mine, honest.

Back to Texas county - I hiked on south to the midline of the section where a good sized manmade dirt berm runs east/west. Those not interested in manmade features can take a pass on this one.
