Island County High Point Trip Report

Date: August 31, 2000

While touching all 5 points, I met the owner of the "mound" on Sequoia Road (referred to in Ken Jones' report). He claims his house is at "elevation 595 feet". The grassy sand pile in the front yard is actually his drain field. He was a pleasant guy and allowed me to wander in the woods near his house. As noted above, the big northernmost 580+ ft area is totally dense nettles/blackberries/etc. I thrashed around in this for quite a while during a hard rain; despite full rain gear, etc. random exposed parts of my body (face, wrists, etc.) were humming for hours from the nettles.
