Fairfax County High Point Trip Report

Here is an addendum to prior reports: Gantt Hill must have been lopped off by at least twenty feet. It is now considerably lower than nearby terrain, and much lower than the area of the military communications facility. The military facility is now guarded by civilian "rent-a-cops," and I did not waste time trying to gain entry.

In my opinion, highest ground is now between the restaurant and the military fence.I took a picture there without anyone bothering me. Beside the military fence, on the side by the water tank, I found a USGS witness post that presumably is near the Peach Grove BM. I couldn't find the BM, which may be inside the fence.
