Bonus Washington DC high point!  Sucess!

Mediocre bonus high point... cool history but not exciting when it comes to the views.

DC Highpoint  Sucess!

Did this after Ebright Azimuth. Easy parking then wandered around the nice park. A little hard to find the actual point but not bad for a lower highpoint.

#1 Federal District Highpoint  Sucess!

I'm climbing the 50 Highpoints (#22 completed as of date) so I might as well do the Federal District while in the area to visit Arlington National Cemetery

Hard to find the "summit"  Sucess!

Several bystanders inquired what I was looking for as I searched for the USGS brass marker. The western highpoints are a lot easier to find.

Christmas Day summit  Sucess!

Hiked from the neighborhood a few blocks away with Kate, Dana, & Trevor. I was very excited to find the marker and get some photos at the peak ;-)

Nice spring day  Sucess!

We stood at the fence-line for photo ops. At least there was a bit of a view!

not much to say  Sucess!

A walk in the park, literally. Made a loop from Van-Ness UDC station for a total distance of 4.9 km.

Quick stopover on the way to WV. Covering state highpoints bases in case of statehood.

Umm, ok  Sucess!

We followed the directions on this site to get to the closed off fence area, operated by DOT, up the small hill near the school parking lot. I guess it's the HP of Wash DC, and we were there, just in case. You never know when DC will gain statehood?

quick foray before heading to my Sister's for Christmas.

interesting I guess  Sucess!

this is a classic "WTF" moment...

1st highpoint

First high point! Went back a second time when I realized the marker was outside the fence. I recommend going over to Rock Creek once you are done for a nice hike.

Family vacation  Sucess!

While in DC on business  Sucess!

I've climbed a number of county summit in California (where I live) but was here on business, so thought I'd get out and tag another HP. Did it in the middle of the night, so it was a bit of a challenge to find the benchmark, but I did find it eventually. Easy stroll up from the Tenleytown metro stop.

Definitely one of the easiest things I've ever done.
