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.
