HP #8  Sucess!

Reached this one in the dark, so I didn't really get to enjoy any scenery. Basically just took a few pictures and then left. Nice way to bring in the new year, with another highpoint.

Highpointing In The Dark!!!  Sucess!

This was the third State Highpoint that I reached in one day. Actually, I reached this one after dark. Good weather, very nice park.
Side-Note: I personally didn't have any problems, but this region of the country is HEAVILY policed. Don't speed.

Rein and Spanky Conquer Britton Hill  Sucess!

Me and Spanky (my dog) bivouacked in Destin, FL the night before our assault on Britton Hill. On the bitter cold (30's) morning of 1/29/07 we successfully summited the beast. Check out http://50summits.blogspot.com for all the details.

Yippee  Sucess!

Looks like the highpoint is in the woods somewhere. Dog and I wandered the area for about 30 minutes.

No Beaches for Me  Sucess!

Down in Florida on business, I made the 80 mile drive to the lowest highpoint in the US. Nice day, so I hiked the .71 mile red trail through the woods also. Highpoint #3.

Mount Ripoff

On a trip I told my Grandkids we would climb the highest mountain in Florida. Expecting a snow capped peak, they called it a rip off as we walked to 20 steps from the car to the high point marker. On our trip back home, we stopped again at Mount Ripoff and they enjoyed the hiking trail in the woods.

Went with my relatives, The Cooks, who reside in Pensacola. Interesting drive there through all the Florida backroads.

Route Climbed: Drive-up Date Climbed: 19 December 2004  Sucess!

Swung by here on my way back to Atlanta from New Orleans with my girlfriend and brother. My girlfriend wasn't too pleased with the detour, and refused to get out of the car to walk the 10 yards to the highpoint. I guess highpointing isn't for everyone.

Route Climbed: Umm, Alabama couloir? Date Climbed: July 28, 2004  Sucess!

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!

Route Climbed: Britton Hill, Florida Date Climbed: July 25, 2005  Sucess!

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. : )
