VtownStrider#8  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 4, 2012

VtownStrider

This was the first of three states that my trip was taking me on, unfortunately I got a late start from the airport in Birmingham so I had to drive up to this high point. I was also going to camp at the lake but the weather was turning ugly fast so I chose to stay at the hotel which was very nice. I also ate at the restaurant that provided amazing views of the valley below. I was blown away at the beauty of this mountain and the surrounding area.

This was part of a weekend doing Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama... not the most exciting but better than sitting around the house! I stayed the night at the motel in the park. It was nice.

Summited ~ mile 41 of the Pinhoti 100 mile Endurance Race. An a mazingly beautiful trail and experience. Never would have thought Alabama would be so gorgious, quite the fall showing compared to what I am used to in Utah. Would have liked to soak in the views a bit more, then again I was in a race that was only going to get a whole lot tougher....

I camped at the campgrounds at the top, then hiked down to the Lake and back up to make it official. A beautiful (although a little chilly) fall morning hike. Came back up the Rock Gardens Trail, added a little bit of a challenge. The fall colors were a very nice addition

The third of a trifecta weekend with my wife. We visited both Woodall Mountain and Britton Hill on Oct 15th and Cheaha Mountain on Oct 16th. This is my 49th state highpoint! Next stop; Mauna Kea!

Great views, nice stone buildings at the top, and cooler weather than what you get down at the base of the mountain. Surprisingly steep in some sections. Loved it.

Enjoyed a brief road trip with Ed and met Kate from work-related travel to Atlanta. HP #23! The summit was a bit overwhelming with all the TV and comm. towers but the short hike to Pulpit Rock produced wonderful views! Really enjoyed all the CCC era stone buildings!

Got this one on a cold, lonely day. The state park seemed deserted.

Got our exercise by hiking up the Rock Garden Trail. Great trail, but not obvious from the map. Drove up later - also checked out the Bald Rock Trail. And we finished with dinner up top at the lodge (what a view.) HP #17.

Rainy, cloudy day. Climbed the tower and waited for the storm to pass. Met some very nice people. Lovely State Park. Came home with the puppy I found abandoned on the side of the park entrance road, so I got more than a high point from AL.

Few people in the area on a gray and misting St. Patrick's Day. Parked at the Lake and hiked to the summit with my family - kids are ages 5 and 6, dog age 8. No problems getting them to the top, but we do hike together frequently so they were ready for it. Kudos to the park rangers who keep this area clean and were helpful. Good camp store with patches and stickers as Highpoint souverniers.

Summited Alabamas highest point on a beautiful early November day. Probably a far cry from the weather going on in our native Wisconsin. We were on our way down to Florida to hang out by the beach for several days.

Beautiful day while driving from VA to UT. Cell phone tower was very tempting to climb. Loved the family oriented park at the top and hotel.
