Kerr County High Point Trip Report

Date: November 2000
Author: Bob Martin

South of Junction, go to the intersection of US83 and TX39. Drive S a mile on US83 to a ranch entrance on the left. Drive east 0.2 mile to a nice ranch house on the left. Stop and meet Bob Ramsey. With permission, drive a half mile to a windmill at 2410'. Walk a short distance SE to a slightly higher point, the cohp.

Bob Ramsey is a friendly fellow who is filled with interesting information. For example, he said that the USGS told him that from the Kerr cohp, looking directly E, the next higher point is in the Pyranees Mountains of France. Slightly N of E, the nearest higher point is Stone Mountain, GA. Note: I looked east and didn't see those mountains in France. Must be my eyesight is failing or it was a hazy day. Or maybe those curvature-of-the-earth folks caused it.
