kteichertHP #24  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2011


Flying to Paris today. Had from 8 pm on may 4, til 3:15 pm on may 5 with nothing planned. So I made the drive to Lakewood, FL to bag this monster. Haha :) Love every highpoint adventure and the random places it takes you. Must say though that I'm thoroughly enjoying the sunrise at Lake Jackson in Florala, Alabama.

VtownStriderHighpoint #6  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 2, 2011


After a long drive from Birmingham I bagged this mighty beast and stayed long enough to take a picture of the sign, I will say it again though that every high point is a thrill in itself as I traveled from Connecticut to bag this one!!

Visited this lovely wayside at about 6:00 AM and then drove to Pensacola and visited the Naval Aviation Museum. The museum was worthwhile and it was free! State HP #45.

Not much of a hill even but a nice area. Doesn't look much like the rest of Florida.

dspriceHP #1 - Start Small  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2009


Memorial Day Weekend - good stop on the way to the beach. Highlight of this stop is the clean, open restrooms. Given its stature, Florida has actually taken good care of this point of interst - it is well marked, clean and accessible.

Historical note: the dense yellow pine harvested here was used to make floor-boards in Grand Central Station (according to the article posted at the site).

I visited this highpoint with my son Lance during a southern states road trip. Up until this point in time, the only other state highpoint he has done with me is Mt. Elbert, CO. We plan to do 4 more during the coming week.

Heading back to Wisconsin after a fun time down at a cabin at Grayton Beach SP. Had to make the short detour to climb our nations lowest state high point. Thrilling!

jeffh25The lowest of the high  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2009


It's nothing but it's something. Florida definitely gets credit for trying. At least they care, I'm looking at you Mississippi & South Carolina. I saw the "Highest snake in Florida" pulling into the parking lot too.

My daughter Vanessa and I visited Lakeland Park (Britton Hill) in 1988. We started our state highpoint quest in September of 1985, and I completed #49 state high points in June, 2009.

Date Climbed: May 15, 2009
This is actually near my hometown. You can't even tell you're on an area of elevation. Nice way to spend an afternoon, though - the scenery on the drive is nice.

highlandvillagerAnother easy one  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 20, 2008


I stopped here on the way (really several hours out of the way) from DFW to Atlanta. A couple named Britton was leaving as I arrived, but said they were not related to the namesake. HP18

Tagged the summit w/ my wife in about 30 seconds from the car. The North Face would be proud. No oxygen needed.

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 1989


While on vacation with the family, I convinced my son that there are mountains in Florida. After visiting the high point he was still unconvinced.

StumblingBearHigh Enough  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2007


I had a friend that grew up on the Miccosukee Indian Reservation in "The Glades", he use to say going to this part of Florida "goin to the mountains", its all a matter of perspective. Its nice they thought to make a nice park out of what most consider nothing. I bet a lot of florida residents use oxygen on the climb too.
