2skinnersHP # 12  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2008
Glad to have this one done. I was almost ashamed taking a picture of myself by the sign. But it's a highpoint nonetheless.

The wife and I achieved this highpoint early in the day. We met and chatted with Doreen for a while- what a sweet lady. The USGS marker is right across the street, to the left of the nearest telephone pole, cut out of the sidewalk. It's easy to find. HP #3 for me, HP #1 for the wife.

eric-grizA short drive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2001


This was prep session for my attempted ascent of Mt. Frissell the following day. It was a short drive from my parent's house in suburban Philadelphia. A good HP for those Highpointers that like to shop at the mall.

Holsti977th Highpoint in 4 days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2007


After climbing Mount Frissell, CT and visiting High Point, New Jersey we still had one Highpoint left to do on our final day before our flight left Philly the next morning. Hungry and tired we drove to the top of Delaware in the dark, got out in a neighborhood filled with houses and took our picture by the sign. Sherpani was discontent. Bribed her with promise of a good meal, and told her she could plan our next "vacation". HP #30. HP #21 for my wife. 7th highpoint of the trip.

Bark Eater

I reached the summit shortly before dusk. While breathing in the rarified air, I took in the sweeping, majestic view of the nearby trailer park from this lofty parapet.

Seriously, see my note under additions if you want to experience some really neat local trails while you are in Wilmington.

Date Climbed: Apr 13, 2007


Did this one with my wife (her first) and my friend/coworker, Bristol Ellington (his second). They weren't as in to the experience as I was. They sat in the car while I looked for, and found, the USGS brass or bronze benchmark across the street from the sign. I also went to the portion of the neighboring trailer park rumored to be 3 feet higher. Beware of the dog!

Date Climbed: Jan 14, 2007


Wandering with my son. To NYC from Philly, via the Del-Mar-Va peninsula. Arrived at 8 pm. Obligatory pictures, then off to Hoboken! (Highpointing as a hobby is indicative we all have issues!)

surgentMet Doreen  Sucess!


Was there in 2001 and again in 2005 with my wife. Both times, easy drive up. Met Doreen K., who lives nearby and is the self-appointed historian of the HP. We walked the fields and trailer park and the points up on the PA state line. She also told us where we could locate one of the witness markers - it's along the sidewalk, across from the blue sign, in a cut-out. You may have to brush away some dirt to see it. It's not much but it is something tangible to tag. Actually, a fun experience.
