These 3 points, close together and in the middle of nowhere, seem to have 3 different owners. Also they
aren't as far in the middle of nowhere as you might think, the 1:25000 quad on Topozone doesn't show the
state highway only 1/4 mi. away although the hard-copy quad shows it as a white swath. From R255, 0.7
mile W of the county line, go N 0.3 mi. on CR 232. I didn't find BM Hardy but that area had been logged.
I didn't see any posting at the site but driving back saw a "Posted" sign further down that may apply to the
area, however the HP may be a bump in the road right of way.
The second area is beyond a gate marked "Union Pacific Resources Donner Unit A#1", as a stockholder,
I know the company is now Anadarko Petroleum. If you have an urgent need to visit this area, the
emergency number is 409-698-9606. The area S of the road has been cleared and the highest area is
probably in the brush to the N.
The third area is near a radio tower and is accessed by a separate gated road, which is not posted.
