No snow on the summit...  Sucess!

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.

Just Another Drive  Sucess!

This was my first attempt to do a high point by myself. It was raining when I got there. They have the sign and a bench to mark the high point. HP #4.

Successful highpoint!  Sucess!

For some reason it was difficult to find driving from PA in the evening and parking was also quite difficult to find. More trouble than I imagined for this highpoint!

This was the second time that my hiking and HP buddy, Mike, and I have visited Ebright Azimuth (first time was in 1994?). With the increase of technology (digital cameras, etc.), we basically decided to redo and document the 18 HP's we had already completed along the east coast. The disposable camera/photos just didn't cut it. What a better way to restart our HP odyssey with locating the HP of "The First State." Considering we're both Marylanders, the trip to the HP wasn't too difficult. A very nice overhaul to the HP area since 1994. Back then, I remember this area as just another "bump" in the road.

SHP #7  Sucess!

Fortunately, this one is only about an hour from my house. I don't think I have told anyone about this visit because not only wouldn't they understand, but they would think I am nuts! (like when I flew to Ohio and drove to a cornfield in Indiana)

arrived late  Sucess!

Got here around 2 am, couldn't find the marker and wasn't going to hunt around in peoples yards at that time of night.

Highpoints of Life  Sucess!

Just catching up to logging "summits" after seeing recomended sites to visit.
Had ascended the great peak returning home from Wilmington and enroute to Pat's King of Steaks in Philly.

A friendly place  Sucess!

While waiting for a friend to meet me at Ebright Azimuth, I was aproached by a nice lady who seemed to be the self-appointed caretaker of the highpoint. She told me some of the history of the highpoint, the Highpointers club, and the area. It was quite a nice reception! HP36

4th HP  Sucess!

Pit stop off I-95  Sucess!

Nailed this one driving from NC to Long Island. Nice quiet, little neighborhood. I got the idea that the residents must think I was crazy but I guess they get it regularly. #2 for me.

HP #10  Sucess!

Easy to find. Used to coordinates and the GPS took me right to it. Had trouble finding survey marker. Didnt look in additions and corrections to see that it is actually on same side of the street at sign. Was finally able to find it after about 15 mins of looking, asked some nice lady walking her dog.

Got this out of the way..  Sucess!

Hardest part? Finding a place to park... then stepping out of the Air Conditioned car into the 90+ degree heat!

#10  Sucess!

After spending the day walking around historic Philadelphia and on my way to D.C., I "hiked" to the "summit" of Ebright Azimuth. The hardest part was the fact I had a blistering headache.

Second time  Sucess!

Came back here for the second time (the first was in '92). It seems much the same, but there is now a nice concrete curb in front of the sign, that allows someone to take a photograph without standing in the middle of traffic. We hit it on a rainy Sunday morning, so it was a pretty quiet summit.

My 12th high point  Sucess!

Just a little day drive. Nice day out and definitely a cool sign!
