Barely Made it (before it closed)  Sucess!

Eventually they close the gates in the evening so just go during business hours.

US State Highpoint 4/20  Sucess!

It’s a hill in a field on a college campus. Very whelming. Several highpoints in the Midwest seem to be this way; an interesting coincidence, or is it illuminati? The world may never know.

Ground Control to Major Tom (#11)  Sucess!

4th of July state number 3. Cold War Missile Defense Radar. Enough said.

What views  Sucess!

This may have been the hardest hike that I have ever taken. ;-p This was just another quick check off for the list, and not much to see. Bellefontaine and the area is interesting in itself for a quick day trip.

Ohio Winds  Sucess!

Stiff winds, low temperatures made this a chilly 5 minute stop on our road trip to secure a puppy.

Souper Summit  Sucess!

Andy Warhol should paint a picture of this one. I came here from Hoosier Hill. Met another highpointer making his visit. State highpoint #19.

HP # 25  Sucess!

Not much of a "hike" here, but the rotating faux radar is a nice touch to the area's history.

success  Sucess!

The peak might not have been much, but I did enjoy going by the Wright brothers' place and to Gen. Grant's birthplace on this trip

HP# 5  Sucess!

Had a couple weeks off from work, decided to take a trip to the East from IL to hit a bunch of HPs. (HP 2 of 9 during this trip.) Got here just when it was getting dark, a little bit hard to find, still a pretty cool setup. Little to no view.

High Point #19  Sucess!

Nice little high point general area, but relatively disappointing views all things considered (parking lot, construction and buildings), and no hike to speak of (15 steps from parked car to actual high point).

Highpoint #20  Sucess!

Mediocre and boring highpoint, but a nice plaque for it with an american flag. Went on a Sunday when its technically closed but parked just outside the gate and walked through an opening in the fence, no issue.

Okay, not great.  Sucess!

College campus, just drove up to the spot. They did a nice job, but not much of a "hike" to the peak.

Stat high point #5  Sucess!

On a road trip from Chicago around the southeast. Arrived just after dark on a very cold and snowy night. My dog barked ferociously at something across the parking lot...

Highpoint # 23  Sucess!

Headed to Ohio since i still have vacation days to burn before the end of the year (thank you covid ... sigh). First of two highpoints this trip.

HP# 43  Sucess!

Flew into Columbus Oct 17, 2020 took a motel, and next day picked up a rental car and drove to Campbell Hill. US State Highpoint #43 for me.

Thank you Ohio!

HP #2  Sucess!

It is what it is, check out the many national parks close by.

Not much to say  Sucess!

While in Columbus to watch the St Louis Blues (yay!), I meandered out and got myself a high point!

2 of 2  Sucess!

We made a 14.5 hour 725 mile round-trip from Illinois to bag Hoosier Hill and Campbell Hill in the same day. The weather was fantastic and you could see for “miles!” Walk over to the spinning radar dish for an interesting piece of history. It appears they will be building a new museum in the future. That should be interesting.

Our Google Girlfriend routed us directly from Hoosier Hill. Along the way I lamented if this upcoming and future generations will lose map reading skills?!

On the way home we came up with a new game to pass the spotting. Have you seen those metal stars people put on their houses? We shout out star when one was spotted. We spotted 8 triple star houses and my brother spotted a quadruple star house! You say “star” for every one you spot.
