Highpoint #33. Rented a minivan & took turns driving from MA (home) to MO-AR-LA-MS-AL-FL & back. Approached with the sun trying to burn off the clouds. Tried to wander around on the trails but the way was blocked by tremendous amounts of incredibly intricate 3-dimensional spider webs the likes of which I have never seen. Unfortunately the images from my camera don't do them justice; condensation on the lens didn't help, either. Oh well, back to MA & to a really surprised car rental agency!
This was my first highpoint, on the quest to complete them all. I thought that I should start with the lowest. However, now I think I will go in the order of most convenient. Not a very difficult one, I hiked all the trails, thinking there must be more. If more means banana spiders and wasps, I guess I made out pretty well.
Drove right by it the first time! No hike--no frills. But, it's the HP of FL. : )
A nice hike on Florida's highest dune at 3 AM through rain and darkness!
Not much of a hike.
I drove through the Florida panhandle when I got my new car in Florida, and had to drive it to Denver, Colorado. Driving through the panhandle, I was driving through a hurricane. The hurricane subsided by the time I got to the highpoint.
