In New Jersey for work and thought I would stop off to see the highest point in Delaware. I think this is the closest high point to the road that I have experienced. Interesting that they paved over the geodetic marker and that a vigilant resident had the sidewalk partially removed. Thanks for your help!
Round trip - 10 minutes. Elevation gain - 2 feet!
Drove east from Boonsboro, Md on a geocaching expedition that lead me to Delaware's Azimuth. Beautiful area. Highpoint #2 for me:)
My favorite part about my State HP #2 was visiting with Doreen. What a sweet lady!
Quick detour on the drive from DC to Boston. Lovely sunset! Got pizza down the road before getting back to the highway.
Quick stop here for #16.
It is what it is. Drove through the trailer park too just in case though.
Not much to see but another one off the list.
We drive by on US-1 and US-322 all the time, but never actually stopped before. On a trip to First State National Monument in New Castle and Woodlawn, we tagged this on as a finishing flourish to our afternoon. Highpoint #8!
Well, damn...I should have read the climbers' log before passing through. It was after midnight, I was on my way to Shenandoah from PHL, and I did not want to make too much of a stir in the neighborhood. So I missed getting my pic of the benchmark.
Ah, well. Fun to visit, but Dogfish Head is probably a more worthy Delaware stop...:-)
Went to this entertaining highpoint at the beginning of a trip. Seems that the true HP is next to the first trailer you come to on the right in the mobile home park.
Visited the one highpointers designated benchmark. It was a fun detour from the trip between friends in DC and friends in Philly. Doreen came out to visit with us.
Pretty easy. Wheelchair accessible. Drive thru highpoint. Summit sign can be read from where you park. The sheer lunacy of finding a bump in the middle of a neighborhood keeps it fun.
I didn't get an official picture of this highpoint, so I'd like to go back and do this one again, if I ever get a chance.
Not much of a high point but a point none the less. We parked about a quarter mile away in a development. If you look at the sign, the marker is to the left about 20 yards next to the side walk. We couldn't find the other markers supposedly in the area, but didn't look very hard either.
Sunny day. First time to state of Delaware for me.
Wow... we visited during a armageddon-style downpour thanks to Tropical Storm Andrea. Needless to say, we got a couple pictures and then hightailed it back to the safety of the car. I had to explain to my bewildered 8 year old daughter that this was all part of the adventure. :-)
It was touch and go there for a while, those class 4 moves were scary. ;)
Of course it's just a roadside stop, and relatively boring. But, it was a milestone STATE HP for us, as it is #20! It was the last of the weekend, which included WV, MD, PA, NJ, and DE. I know they will get tougher as we go west this summer, but still, 40% completed isn't that bad?!
I was driving to Philadelphia for a friend's wedding, and decided that since I was only a few miles away, now was as good a time as any to summit Delaware. If snowed on the trip from Harrisburg to Philadelphia, so I was really hoping that it would keep up and I could get a picture of the high point sign with snow in the background... you know, snow capped peaks and all...
But alas, the snow stopped before I got there. This was my 13th high point, 6th within the last year, and first of 2013. My goal is to do at least 15 this year.
