HP #5  Sucess!

On our way back from a family trip to Florida from Texas we hit this HP. We decided to leave FL late at night and drive till we got tired. All of us got out of the car and shivered in the cold air while blinded by the car's beams to take a sleepy photo by the HP sign and marker.

Careful of the fire ants!  Sucess!

Highpoint # 33 for me, and HP # 1 for my 3-yr old son, who got attacked by fire ants close to the monument. A small price to pay!

HP#18  Sucess!

Irma wasn't letting us enjoy the beach, so chose today to hit up Britton. HP#6 for the wifey.

Finally.... Florida  Sucess!

11:29 am. On a 3 week RV trip. Hit 4 state highpoints. Dogs in tow. Had the "summit" all to ourselves. Wow... this one is way off in the boondocks. Nice little park though. We have passed by the exit (off of I-10) at least half dozen times but we couldn't take the time to nab this highpoint. Finally planned it into our trip and got it.

Larvitour Stop #11  Sucess!

Good thing I brought my Gore-Tex to this one, since I had to force my way through a line of sprinklers to reach the high point. Nice display, Florida. :)

#28  Sucess!

After Georgia and South Carolina I drive straight down here immediately after. The north face was 6 grueling pitches of WI 6 and M11. I was eventually able to make it up death trap couloir to the summit. Avalanche conditions were high.

Insane Rain (in the membrane)  Sucess!

1 a.m. pull up. Heard dogs barking and getting closer. Was convinced "they" had finally come to kill me.
Part of 2,000 mile solo trip from Ohio grabbing Mississippi and Alabama highpoints as well.

HP #20  Sucess!

Hard to think of this as a HP but it counts. Florida takes pride in their HP (the lowest of the US). A nice park with amenities and clean even in February when we were the only ones there.

HP #30

My 30th HP; climbed on January 1st, 2010. Actually, I had trouble finding Florida's highpoint. Everything is flat in Florida. Florida's highpoint is the lowest of the 50 high points, but still counts. Drove over 1500 miles in 3 days.

#41  Sucess!

Little did I know I would get this into state highpoints.

I was close to a breaking point at work and my wife chased me out the door to get away.

Figured I had only 3 left east of Colorado, so I hit it: AL, MS, FL.

This was the last stop before Pensacola Beach. Took the trail from behind the marker into the woods for a ways. Not bad.

Nice little park  Sucess!

This is no April Fool's joke. I really did make it to the highest point in Florida.

Highpoint #16  Sucess!

The start of a "3 pack" weekend hitting Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi, while on a project assignment in the southeast.

whirlwind trip continues  Sucess!

Another drive up… it was late when I got there, and the moon was big and bright in the sky. A couple sat on their horribly dented car in the parking lot while listening to the radio at a really loud level. Quick run to the "summit" and snapped a picture and then back in the car to make Tallahassee for the night.

very hard...  Sucess!

to take a picture that would make this look like an achievement :). When I went to Panama City Beach to sign up for the ironman, I figured its worth the extra hour or two to get to the high point .

Top of the world!  Sucess!

Enjoyed the drive and the trails, had the "summit" and park all to myself. Spent a few minutes watching the world roll by...
