MJSU.S. Highpoint #8 - Hoosier Hill  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 6, 2016


Please read my October 4, 2016 Climber's Log Post for Campbell Hill to appreciate this post.

I attempted to go to Hoosier Hill on October 5, but after getting lost for more than three hours, and my level of frustration from the day before, I decided to call it quits. I was planning to head home the next day not knowing what tomorrow would bring. After sleeping on my situation and a discussion with my wife, I went and reserved an additional night at the campground.

I was committed to not returning to the campground without finding Hoosier Hill; and I did!

This was our 19th Highpoint. We stopped by this one and Campbell Hill, OH on a trip from Florida to a meeting in Chicago, IL.

We left my cousin's place in Columbus and were heading out to Denver and South Dakota for a vacation and to see America. This was our second High Point of the trip out of five. Next stop, St. Louis for BBQ and to see the Arch.

This place had the shortest approach of any high point I've done--I practically hopped out of my car and onto the summit. It was cloudy when I was there, but I bet it's beautiful on a clear day. Nice job, Indiana, and thanks to the owners for allowing access!

One of my first purposeful highpoints. Got my wife to stop with me on the way to chicago...roller coaster road was pretty cool on the way there if you go fast enough. ...and of course the epic highpoint

Family finally came along: "Dad, highpointing is dumb, drive all this way for this." Ha. Gotta teach 'em the drive is half the fun.

Summitted with Kate, second of a 6 HP trip. The corn looked pretty poor compared to the fields back home. Nice high point!

funnyfarmGood thing the rock is there.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 21, 2015


If it weren't for the rock sticking up out of the ground it would be hard to discern that any one point in the area was any high than another. Drove from here to Missouri to do Taum Sauk.

We drove over to Hoosier Hill from Ohio, where we had "summited" Campbell Hill earlier in the day. The directions from Summitpost were spot on, and we parked just outside the forested area from summit monument and mailbox. Very quiet and peaceful there. A family joined us as we took our pics from our last state HP from a 9 state swing. Sad to end our trip, but happy to be one state HP closer! State HP #43....

Spring has sprung in Indiana - nice bed of ground cover flowers just beginning to bloom at the marker and mailbox.

Unfortunately I did this one on a VERY snowy day. Slipped off the road and had to wait for a tow truck for 3 hours. Luckily I was listening to a soccer game at the time so I was entertained.
