Hit this alpine climb after driving up from Mount Rogers the day before.
We stopped at this High Point on our way from Philadelphia to D.C. The kids enjoyed this one because there was no hiking involved. Lol
Clambered up this peak on the way from D.C. to Connecticut while visiting in laws. State high point number four for me!
Coming from Florida it was reassuring that #2 lowest high point is just as challenging as ours :)
Last stop on Mid-Atlantic high point trip
Several successful expeditions to this bad boy.
Walk across the street, read the sign, take a picture, move along. Completed the first hour of a six-day drive across the country via Chesapeake, Durham, Asheville, Nashville, Springfield, Hannibal, St. Joseph, Lincoln, Sidney, Scottsbluff, Casper, Bozeman, and Butte to Seattle.
Likely the easiest of all the state highpoints to reach...
Made a day trip here the day of my cousin's wedding to nab #40 for me.
This is in a residential area-neighborhood, that is rather indistinguishable in height from the surrounding area.
Took me 10 mins to park the car, get dressed (it was winter), walk across the street, and take the requisite pics.
6th high point for the long weekend. Nicely positioned along the side of the road.
Such an interesting and cool state highpoint. I walked all over the neighborhood to make sure I hit the highest point haha, which really was indiscernable. Did it as part of the weekend running the Boston Marathon.
Flew in to Philly and back home in same day. Hit highpoint #34 for me, then spent the rest of the day in Philly checking out historical sites and eating cheesesteaks.
This was a quick stop in the dark on my way to Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Weekend.
Lovely English woman ran out from her house to give me historical data about the HP
Roadtrip to Delaware for Labor Day weekend. This is # 10 ... I'm a fifth of the way to my goal of making all 50!
Had to bail out the benchmark as it was under 2" of water from the storm that we were following from the WV Highpoint! HP #6 for Dad.
15.5 hours of driving through the heart of Pennsylvania and then back to Ohio for another highpoint! #31.
Was in the area visiting family and made a quick side trip.
Made it up here on a beautiful late-spring day. The approach was tough (I muddled my directions and wound up cutting through neighborhoods in downtown Wilmington, plus it took me a couple of passes to find Ebright Rd.), but the views from the summit were worth it. :)
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!
