wildfamSnowshoe Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 3, 2008


HP #11. Cold & sunny - perfect day for a snowshoe expedition (my first time on snowshoes). Plenty of snow. Base was right across the lake at Highpoint Village resort: stayed 2 nights (loved the Bear's Den cabin). Highpoint Village was a great place with wonderful hosts.

Not successful on first attempt at Timm's Hill on account of our vehicle breaking down somewhere in Northern Wisconsin. Second time was a charm.

Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2007


Hiked about a mile to this HP from Highpoint Village with about 300 other HPers in conjunction with the Highpointers Konvention. Climbed the steel fire tower for a nice view of the area. Also climbed Pearson Hill, and Rib Mountain that day....the 2nd and 4th highest points in Wisconsin. We also climbed the two highpoints of Jackson County (Saddle Mound and a woods near Fairchild), the Clark County Highpoint (Dorchester hay field), and Taylor County Highpoint (old ski hill near Rib Lake) that week. HP #24.

Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2005


I convinced my wife that while we were living in OH we "needed" to climb the HPs of WI, MN, and MI. This was the first of the three. There's a little taste of the desert SW here as well... we found "Hayduke Lives" carved into the wooden fire tower!

AeldrinWhee!  Sucess!


Performed a detour on the way to a convention with some friends to climb this peak. It was a lovely day to be out there, but we felt the trip was a little anti-climactic.

TLPProblem with Timm's Hill  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2006


Okay I have a problem with Timm's Hill. I hate the place. Took a long drive down from Mt. Arvon the same day. The whole time the sky is getting darker. There was going to be a thunderstorm. Looks like I would make it in time till the road construction nonsense starts. Then the slow truck drivers. Still I make it into onto the road that leads to the park. And it's blocked off. It's going to rain any minute now. A guy tells me that he can't let me in, cause a track meet is going on now! I can hike up the road a little further down he says. I go down the road, and there's cars everywhere. It's like the damn Packers were playing there or something. He sends me up the wrong road, and I just about finally realize that while I'm walking when two damn dogs charge me! I had nothing on me either! I yell at them to go back, and amazingly they stop like 10 feet away from me. By this tme it is raining slightly. I go back to my car, figure the right way to go, and I hear thunder. I'm like f&^% this, and go to Tomahawk, WI to spend the night. The next morning I go back, and work my way around all the fallen trees on the road, and go to stupid Timm's Hill in a dense fog. I hope a forest fire burns the area. ...Well at least that is how I felt at the time.

IlafanUgly Man-butt :(  Sucess!


I, for some reason, have done this one twice. The best part of this highpoint is the view of the trees, both on top of the tower and on the short hike from the parking lot. This, of course, is truest in the fall when I did it. HOWEVER, a "loving" couple decided to use the tower as their personal love nest the second time I went there, and because they were so, ahem, involved in what they were doing, they did not hear me climb the steps to the top. There is nothing that will ruin a highpoint more than an unexpected view of ugly, white, flabby man-ass. Must have been Packer fans.

The .8 mile long last road was closed, and had to snow shoe about 1 mile, (pretty flat mile, not strenous at all). Did this without a flashlight, but a full moon.

Highpoint #20. Flew into Chicago intending to do IL, but wasn't granted access. Drove most of the night, tried to catch some sleep in the back of the rental, but the mosquitoes kept me awake. Finally stopped trying to sleep and hiked in past the gate. Climbed the tower at sunrise.

I climbed this and 3 other highpoints in a couple days. None of them significant, but they had to be done.

Climbed in the dark with a small light on my key chain. Had problems returning to the parking lot, so I wound up climbing it again twice in the wee hours of the following morning.

Climbed again on November 16, 2007, with Tami Tomski, this time in the daylight. A nice little walk.

A brisk walk uphill. We arrived at 7:30 when the park was to open and arrived at the summit 2 minutes later. The old metal tower is a far better view and a steel cable will provide saftey every 20 ft or so if you brought your harness. Well worth the drive. Stopped a little cafe (Moose Cafe) in town and had a wonderful home cooked breakfast.

My 11th state highpoint. I got to satisfy my itch for climbing by ascending both the wooden tower (stairs) and the steel tower (ladder). The view from the steel tower is awesome - 360 degrees. We had the place all to ourselves. What a beautiful day to visit the highpoint in the state where I was born.
