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.
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.
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.
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.
Part 1 of an overcaffeinated road trip of 4800 miles from Utah at Thanksgiving!
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.
This is no April Fool's joke. I really did make it to the highest point in Florida.
The start of a "3 pack" weekend hitting Florida, Louisiana, and Mississippi, while on a project assignment in the southeast.
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.
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 .
Enjoyed the drive and the trails, had the "summit" and park all to myself. Spent a few minutes watching the world roll by...
Nice little park. We walked a couple trails to get a feel for the area.
Drove over after a work trip took me to new orleans. stopped for BBQ in Mobile on the way and hiked a little bit around in the trails there. Finished the whole east coast now
Pretty nice forest area behind the park. Found some salamanders, lizards, and centipedes while walking around in there in the early evening. Nice country.
Needed this high point. South almost complete now!
Fifth HP on a 3 week road trip thru 17 states. Hiked to the summit from Alabama. About 1/2 mile then enjoyed the nature trails.
Nothing much to see here, But kicked off a great 10 day long trip to 8 total high points.
In my home state, also Highpoint #1. Yes, that's right i figured i had to start at home, well i live far away from the Panhandle, but still, it's technically FL. It was the beginning of my first highpointing roadie. As far as Britton Hill, HAHA!!
