HP# 10  Sucess!

Had a couple weeks off from work, decided to take a trip to the East from IL to hit a bunch of HPs. (HP 7 of 9 during this trip.) Nice drive. Some hiking trails available. Monument was closed for the season, so I couldn't go up the "staircase". Pretty nice view none-the-less.

Drove the Magic Bus to the peak  Sucess!

Leah and I drove the Magic Bus all the way up to the peak. Fun. Got nervous a little with how steep the road was in High Point State Park but we made it! Peak # 13 for us!

Highpoint #3  Sucess!

Made the 3 hour drive from Southern RI starting at 4:30am. Enjoyed this one on a beautiful june morning- nice rocky singletrack through the woods with some awesome viewpoints. The monument is impressive looking but the windows were quite blurry.

First Climb  Sucess!

This was my first mountain climb, so why not go big and go to the highest point in New Jersey! I took my 18 month old husky along for the hike and it was an absolutely spectacular experience. Trail was very easily marked, sights were extraordinary, and overall it is a great beginning for anyone looking to explore the beauty of nature.

HP#47  Sucess!

What a pleasant surprise! I loved this area and the highpoint. Maybe I got lucky visiting it during a pandemic but I had the place to myself. The monument was not open due to the pandemic so I didn't get to go inside that, but that isn't the natural highpoint anyway. I located two benchmarks, one behind the towers front door and the other in front of it - both 20 yards or so from the structure. It was all fogged in so I didn't get long view but I still enjoyed it a lot. What a neat surprise for a crowded state like NJ.

Saving easy for last  Sucess!

15 years of chasing state highpoints ended here on a beautiful (although little smokey) crisp morning. Parked on the road to the east and jogged up the AT to the top. Only a couple of people up there. Had some celebratory beers. Felt surreal to be done.

Re: Saving easy for last

I've been at it for 18.5 years, NJ was #47 for me as I also saved the easy ones for last.

no visibility  Sucess!

The area was all in fog and rain. Had a feel that it would be a nice park, but..

Slow going

Long drive from the DMV to get here. The driving conditions were not ideal. The roads were slick and wintery conditions existed. I saw several wipeouts on the way here. When I entered the park, a ranger was using the big snow plow. He told me the park was open but most roads were closed and impassable. I decided to make the trek up anyway. Totally worth it. It was foggy and whiteout conditions. I could barely see the Monument through the fog and whiteout.

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.

Hp  Sucess!

Climbed the tower only to find no windows or view at the top...just hot air
