7th Highpoint in 4 days  Sucess!

After climbing Mount Frissell, CT and visiting High Point, New Jersey we still had one Highpoint left to do on our final day before our flight left Philly the next morning. Hungry and tired we drove to the top of Delaware in the dark, got out in a neighborhood filled with houses and took our picture by the sign. Sherpani was discontent. Bribed her with promise of a good meal, and told her she could plan our next "vacation". HP #30. HP #21 for my wife. 7th highpoint of the trip.

What a view!  Sucess!

I reached the summit shortly before dusk. While breathing in the rarified air, I took in the sweeping, majestic view of the nearby trailer park from this lofty parapet.

Seriously, see my note under additions if you want to experience some really neat local trails while you are in Wilmington.

Rough Hike  Sucess!

This one wasn't too difficult...funny though to have everyone in the neighborhood staring.

Highpoint #14  Sucess!

Did this one with my wife (her first) and my friend/coworker, Bristol Ellington (his second). They weren't as in to the experience as I was. They sat in the car while I looked for, and found, the USGS brass or bronze benchmark across the street from the sign. I also went to the portion of the neighboring trailer park rumored to be 3 feet higher. Beware of the dog!

End to a day of wandering  Sucess!

Wandering with my son. To NYC from Philly, via the Del-Mar-Va peninsula. Arrived at 8 pm. Obligatory pictures, then off to Hoboken! (Highpointing as a hobby is indicative we all have issues!)

Met Doreen  Sucess!

Was there in 2001 and again in 2005 with my wife. Both times, easy drive up. Met Doreen K., who lives nearby and is the self-appointed historian of the HP. We walked the fields and trailer park and the points up on the PA state line. She also told us where we could locate one of the witness markers - it's along the sidewalk, across from the blue sign, in a cut-out. You may have to brush away some dirt to see it. It's not much but it is something tangible to tag. Actually, a fun experience.

Route Climbed: Residential streets of Wilmington  Sucess!

Last of my highpoints for the weekend (WV, MD, PA previous day). Returned to VA Beach via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. This one is a check in the box at best - HP #5!

Highpoint #8 for me, and so far the only one I've done in a bathing suit (had the family in tow and just left Sesame Place for the day).

Route Climbed: took the road Date Climbed: 2/8/02  Sucess!

Went with my friend Kim before she left for 3 1/2 years of working/living in Japan. Initially we drove too far, and were in a bad part of Wilmington. We drove back up the road, and there was the street sign. It was a small hill to get to the top, but no more than 50 feet up from the main sub-highway. We passed the tower up to higher ground, and asked around for the highpoint location. Some kids were biking by near their house, and it occurred to me that this is the ONLY residential highpoint - (i.e. located in a neighborhood among several homes). All the other highpoints are remote, even if on somebody's land, and Jerimoth Hill, RI is in the woods.

We asked a woman where the actual highpoint was, and she pointed to a white rock. Basically, the whole street is like the highpoint, and it is really disconcerting nonetheless.

Basically, I was glad to get this one done. The Delaware Highpoint isn't too far off of I-95, and no other highpoint is anywhere near this most traveled road in the United States. It really discourages you to see how developed the land is, but considering the fact that the other 49 aren't developed like this, you should feel better.

Drove to this highpoint. Took some pictures to prove I was there, and then left. Nothing really to see.
