Assault on Caldwell Knob

December 1, 2008 at 11:07 pm 2 comments

While in Texas, the team responsible for tackling Live Oak hill decided to be a bit more adventuresome, and drive greater than 30 miles to conquer Caldwell Knob. This summit, located in Bastrop County, juts a massive 574 feet into the air. The team added Little Girl (Anna) for this ascent, to provide an opportunity for the 9 year old to add to her summit tally. After the ~30 mile drive to Bastrop, we obtained cheeseburgers from the local Sonic drive in, and proceeded to Pope Bend road North.

After exiting we drove approximately 0.8 miles North to what appeared to be the highest point in the area, and consumed the cheeseburgers (still warm due to the short drive). Although not a difficult summit, and not nearly as treacherous as our previous ascent of Live Oak Hill, the ascent added both another summit and another Texas county (Bastrop) to the growing list of cheeseburger summits in the great state of Texas.

    Seems like there were a lot of ‘assaults’ in Texas while you were there Bassman. What gives?

    I meant to say a salty cheeseburger for the second one.
