Drove to the top with my dad. The tower is ok, because you get 360 views but the several antennae and dirty glass detract from their quality. I would recommend that anyone visit Pulpit Rock, though; less than a mile round trip hike and an amazing view and rock formation. In my opinion, this place is the coolest natural area in the state of Alabama, and I have been to Alabama a few times.

Cheaha, State HP #2 for us, we drove right up from Britton in FL on the same day. It was a nice little park and peak. There was a wedding going on at the pavilion near the summit. We just watched them for some reason, then got in the car and drove towards GA....

Date Climbed: Nov 21, 2012


Definitely among the most convenient state high points I've come across so far. Only about 14 miles off the interstate on a thanksgiving trip to see my wife's sister's family in Meridian, Mississippi. Nice little park. Carried my two year old son on my shoulders from the gift shop to the summit. We had to stop to ride the slide near the top. His first high point and my fifteenth.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2012


This one came near the end of a long trip of HP's (15th on a trip of 16) so we needed to be on our way home. Accordingly, we drove to the top. The lookout tower was really neat though (especially from the outside).

Hit this high point as part of a road trip to texas with the family. We saw quite a few deer right around the HP.

Summited this "mountain" as the final 2 miles in the Mount Cheaha 50 k ultramaration. The final uphill push was a cruel joke after running nine hours so far that day! Great weather, fantastic volunteer support on the course.

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.

apachedinoPinhoti 100 Mile Race  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 5, 2011


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
