Laramie County High Point Trip Report

Tried to drive in on Duck Creek road shown on topo to east of HP. The road on north side of creek is long gone. On south side we ended up in the yard of a house near south line of section 34. Talked with the owner, but he did not own the HP ground, and said it might be tough to get permission.

Went back to main highway and continued to a new dirt road (not on map) on south line of section 4, and then heading north on west line of section 4. While heading north we spotted a flatbed semi, and on the way back saw rocks being loaded on - probably for decorative sale/use. We drove to a house under construction at the northwest end of Twin Mountains Lake, but no one was home.

Retracing our path a bit, we drove a faint unmapped road to a parking location right at north end of our target hill. From here it was a quick climb (500 feet of gain) for me to the top through pine trees. There are two brown cremation containers at the very top of the summit, which has some large rock outcrops.
