Unlike Hoosier "Hill." Drove from Indy with my dad and my nephew to get these two. #5

Nice little spot.

Just a drive up  Sucess!

Just a drive up. It's on a school property. Now they have gates, so some days you would have to hike to the highpoint.

Downpour  Sucess!

Took a detour to this guy on my way from NY to WV. Drove through the night on the way out, got soaked walking to the summit - I am sure there wasn't much of a view anyway but with the rain and fog I could barely see 10 feet anyways. Afterwards I headed over to the Zane Shawnee Cavern for a great little tour before driving back to Wheeling WV for the night.

Home State HP  Sucess!

Well taken care of and has a bit of history. Thought I should knock out a couple of local HP before I do a western states loop. On to Indiana......

HP #17  Sucess!

This was an enjoyable highpoint. It was kept up very well. Visited this one with my wife and three sons.

SHP #5 -- 24 years ago!!!  Sucess!

It was a bit different then. When I get around to scanning my old photos of my highpoint quest, begun in 1985 with my daughter Vanessa, I'll post a shot showing the site as it was then. Back then the Ohio state flag was flown below the Stars and Stripes, and there were four benches arranged around the marker. Campbell Hill was the fifth of my 49 state high points and Vanessa's 39 SHPs.

After visiting Indiana, this one was almost exciting...

HP #3  Sucess!

I (with my wife (Tracy) and son (Alex), then almost 2 yrs old) did this as part of our first family HP trip.

On 11 Aug 2008, I revisited with my son (now 8) and my daughter (Gabriella), 4 - we drove into the vocational school through the gate and around to the high point.

Worth the long drive...  Sucess!

There wasn't much going on at this HP during the weekend, but a State HP is a State HP. Beautiful weather, green grass, no bugs.
This was the fourth of seven HPs attained on my most ambitious weekend HP road trip to date.

HP #33  Sucess!

HP #33. Drove down from NY to grab 3 HP's and enjoy a weekend away. Not exciting, but well kept and the green pastures along the way were green and beautiful.

Nice drive  Sucess!

I detoured to Campbell Hill on my way back to Indy at the end of a business trip. Although the highpoint was less than exciting, the drive through Ohio farm land was scenic and relaxing. I tried visiting nearby Ohio Caverns, but didn't have time to wait for the next tour. HP6

A Long Day's Night  Sucess!

Drove through the night from Wisconsin to Plymouth, Indiana. Survived the earthquake. "Climbed" the Ohio highpoint on a sunny Spring day. Continued on to Cincinnati and watched the Brewers defeat the Reds 5-2. HP #31.

Groundhog Day Summit  Sucess!

Drove 3 hours from Indianapolis with an energetic, completely wired Weimaraner, total disaster. But this was my first highpoint, and I'm hooked. I hit Hoosier Hill on the way back for my second. The signage is nice at the top of the hill, got some good pictures for my soon-to-be lame "double summit" trip reports.

Ice Cold Wind  Sucess!

Highpoint #2 for all 5 of us. Stopped by as we drove across the state; had called to get the campus gate left open. Mainly memorable for the wind & ice pellets

Nice  Sucess!

Made the summit at 11:30 am on January 12, 2008. Nice weather and clear sky's.

Highpoint #20  Sucess!

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.

Honesty, the best policy.  Sucess!

At least they are honest in calling it Campbell Hill and not Mount Campbell or Campbell's Peak.

Route: North Face Direct  Sucess!

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.
