Park Rangers  Sucess!

Climbed around the mountain a bit with a college friend. Apparently the park closes at 8pm so I got picked up by a park ranger and got hauled back to my car without my friend. I quickly found him running the road toward me, though. Hit the top again on February 15, 2010 with my wife on our return from the Catskills.

Highpoint Number 16  Sucess!

We were just glad that the monument was open and we could take the stairs to the top. It was an easy way to complete a highpoint in route to Mt. Marcy.

Highpoint #15/a perfect storm  Sucess!

I left my hotel in Philly at 3:45 in the morning. The area was experiencing a record breaking (for April) nor'easter but it only took me 3 hours to get to Highpoint State Park. The creeks and rivers along the way were flooded and swollen. I passed one car submerged up to it's windshield. I got there more than an hour before the gates to the park opened. Since the storm had subsided to a slight drizzle (but still very windy) I decided to hike in and out before the weather got worse again. Just before I reached the highpoint, it DID get worse again. Over the next 45 minutes, rain, sleet, hail and snow fell/blew on me and I hadn't brought a hat, umbrella, or raincoat. Still, since I likely was only going to be there once, I hiked out via the Appalachian Trail back to the highway. I got back to the car just as the ranger was unlocking the gates. I dried off over the next 3.5 hours in the rental car while driving back to the Philadelphia Airport.

Cool, crisp day  Sucess!

I visited High Point during a business trip to CT. Thankfully, the park was open and I could drive up to the monument as I was suffering from the flu. It was a beautiful crisp, clear December morning, and I was the only one there. This is my 17th state highpoint.

A beautiful warm day. Monument closed off due to construction but could still access the banckmark nearby. Spent some time wandering the nearby trails.

Cold, rainy, just me.  Sucess!

Here late in the day on a rainy afternoon. No one at top but me. Fencing and construction, but I walked around to the top anyway.

Cross Country Fun  Sucess!

The snow was fresh, deep and i wanted to try cross country skiing so played hookie from work and took some lessons, got rentals at the center, did the swamp loop then headed for the monument. What a beautiful day with crisp skies of blue against the snow.

Route Climbed: Monument Trail  Sucess!

Ok views (pretty drizzly), but lovely spring in North Jersey. Surprised to see very few people around.

Route Climbed: AT Southbound to Monument Trail.  Sucess!

After spending a frigid night at Sawmill Pond Campground I drove the the trailhide and hiked up. Very pleasant and only encountered a few people on the trail, but I was alone on the summit. Amazing views...and a very big monument tower that is too big for the mountain.
