Highpoint #34  Sucess!

A peaceful walk to the Summit and this is the end of my trip 12/12 highpoint’s. What a great way to see America!

HP #44!  Sucess!

Little over 2 mile round trip hike... not flat, but not super steep. When I got to the summit after leaving Mt. Zion Church parking lot, there was a lizard on the stump marking the summit, so I guess I was beat to it!

Steamy hot day in the Bayou

This is Louisiana. I flew into Memphis. I then proceeded on a 1,955-mile road trip through the southern states to bag the highpoints in MO, AR, LA, FL, AL, and MS. Here is LA, highpoint number 20/51 for me and ranked 48/51. Parked at the rear of Mt Zion Church. I was the only one there for miles and miles. The trailhead starts in the rear of the church parking lot next to the cemetery. As you start up the trail, you are strongly encouraged to wear orange or pink during hunting season and two orange vests were hanging on the gate. The trail is well marked and is an easy walk. It was steaming hot in the bayou, I wore a ball cap and sunglasses, but found no need for bug spray.

Driskill mt  Sucess!

Great day for a hike. Directions were very good. Trail behind the old church and cemetary. Signs along the trail tell about the families that support the trail. Gradual incline over the 1.5 miles to the top. Good views at the top along. orange vests were left at the trail head to year in hunting season.

Highpoint # 12  Sucess!

A work meeting brought me to MS and so i took advantage of the free airfare and tackled the "mountain" in LA. Proud to be about a quarter of the way through the 50 state highpoints.

It Rained! #5  Sucess!

Wet and muddy. And my knee was a mess, probably on of the only state high points I could have reached that messed up..

Driskill Detour  Sucess!

Not much of a hike, did it in my flip-flops on my way back from a funeral. With somber in the air I made the most of this detour by googling nearby attractions. I got lucky when I went to Lake Bistineau State Park and found a drained lake!! It was other worldly as I rode my mountain bike around the bottom of a lake bed amoungst the exposed bald cypress underwater tree root system. Just bizarre.

Beautiful morning  Sucess!

Started the morning here shortly after sunrise. Trees are not marked as well although it is a fairly quick high point. Definitely out in the boondocks...

Larvitour Stop #13  Sucess!

Had a nice late-afternoon hike here. The "mountain" wasn't much, but the woods were scenic in their own right. Lots of bugs, though.

Highpoint #30!  Sucess!

Short little hike but it was HOT and HUMID! This was our 8th state highpoint in this trip and the rest had been cold, wet, or at least cool! Nice hike though!

HP #39  Sucess!

Glad the landowners keep it open. I did it at 2 AM in the moonlight and all things considered, the summit area is nice.
