Hale County High Point Trip Report

Author: John Garner

Go north on the dirt road next to the Lubbock HP (see report). Follow this road unit it dead-ends back at FM 54. Turn left (W) on FM 54 to the town of Spade. Then turn right (N) on FM 168. Follow this road about 30 miles north, going through the town of Olton. Beyond Olton, turn right (E) on FM 2881. Go about 3 miles. At a farm house just before the marked county line boundary, turn left (N) on yet another dirt section-line road. The HP is about half to three-quarters of a mile north.

Here again, I couldn't find the corner monument, but the HP contour curves through the area. This one is in another cotton field. I gridded the area again to make sure I stepped on "the" HP (such a purist).
