HP #13!  Sucess!

Couldn't enjoy this summit in the slightest as it was pouring buckets here at the top... but I will be back! Regardless, still counted as another HP added.

HP #35  Sucess!

Was on the east coast to run the Boston Marathon, and decided to hit the highpoints of NJ & DE. Gave me a chance to visit Philly as well, a city to which I'd never been before, and will go back many times hereafter. Such a cool city!

High Point #26  Sucess!

Very muggy and hot day. I climbed the 22 stories to the top of the monument. That was harder than the hike up the AT to the high point.

Larvitour Stop #19  Sucess!

The official park entrance was closed when I arrived at 7:30 am, so I backtracked to the Steely Kill Lake boat access/parking lot and hiked up to the high point from there. I followed a blue-blazed trail along the lake and into the woods, then turned right onto a red-and-green blazed trail which led me to a park road that took me to the high point. The obelisk was also closed, but I had the summit to myself. It was windier than I'd expected.

State HP #4  Sucess!

Hiked solo on the AT from Rt 23. Great views from the summit, and had to race back to car when storm clouds could be seen rolling in from PA.

Clearer Day  Sucess!

Summited first time Fathers Day 1993. Foggy day so missed out on the views. Much clearer day this time around - a nice visit for sure however it was crowded

Highpoint #1  Sucess!

I grew up in New Jersey and don't know the date we visited the park and climbed the tower. I think I need to go back and get an official picture.

First of Fifty  Sucess!

First state high point attempted. Headed up there with Gramps and both of our cameras in tow. Great weather and off the mountain in time for breakfast at the diner just south of the park.
