Made the summit at 11:30 am on January 12, 2008. Nice weather and clear sky's.
We camped at Hueston Woods State Park in Oxford, Ohio. Between the low of 32 degrees and the midnight rain, it was a little cold. My wife and I enjoyed the time together and seeing the countryside of Ohio.
At least they are honest in calling it Campbell Hill and not Mount Campbell or Campbell's Peak.
One of my first real climbs. Almost didn't make it. I ran out of formula just below the summit and was in need of a clean diaper, but I persevered and continued on. Made it back to the car just before a big storm set in obscuring the summit.
Drove over from IL. Visited Campbell Hill on 7/14/07 and Hoosier Hill on 7/15/07. HP #19.
best summit ever!!!
Still enjoyed checking out this highpoint. I even made a return trip 15 years later (4/27/07) with my two kids. HP #6 for my son and my daughter's 1st.
The weather finally broke for our fourteenth summit. Please go to http://50summits.blogspot.com to read all it.
All alone atop Ohio, and it was...cold. Well, I had to go back to the car to get my sweatshirt, anyway. Interesting only because at the bottom of the small hill I didn't need it. Quite peaceful.
We almost got there too late before they close the campus for the weekend...
I convinced my mother that during my trip to Indiana that it would be a good idea to drive to Ohio to complete my 11th State highpoint and her first. We had a good day. Back to bigger highpoints in Colorado.
Well it's better than MS for sure. I don't know what to make of this highpoint. It's not like it's all trashed up, it's well maintened, but it's kinda boring. It was a bit windy when I was there. Really no view though of anything special, and it lacks a flavor like IL and IN have.
Jogged to top, got photo, jogged back.
Off to Cleveland via scenic route. Second state and 5th county HP of day. Intersting, this site was an early warning radar site in the Cold War. Ohio had alot of soybeans!
I visited this one with Bristol Ellington who has accompanied me on actual hikes/climbs in the past. We drove up from Dayton where we were attending a conference and visited this one at 7:20 AM.
Ugh, this was when I knew I had become a highpointer.
Highpoint #14. Took turns driving all the way out & back with a similarly-crazed fellow highpointer from MA, just to bag IN & OH.
Meh. Bored over Thanksgiving holiday.
Not the most inspired 'summit' around.
Our highpointing adventure has begun.
