Got NJ!  Sucess!

Reached the high point at 8:30 am on July 30, 2009. I forgot the Highpointers convention was going on. The tower was open so my daughter and I climbed to the top. It was a bit foggy due to the rain/storms that went through the night before. Nice area and park. Would like to go back to spend some more time.

LOVED IT!  Sucess!

After driving through endless miles of New Jersey suburbia and traffic lights, this state park was a treat! Quiet and peaceful with nice views and a great cool wind. LOVED IT!

#2 SHP - beginning the quest  Sucess!

My 9-year old daughter Vanessa and I started our highpoint quest in September 1985, going to Vermont, New Jersey, and Delaware. 24 years later I completed #49, and have no intent to go to Alasaka.

Super Cold, but fun!  Sucess!

Climbed this in lots of snow, and right after a ice storm. So branches of shrubs were hanging over the trail, making hiking very hard. It was around -12 with the wind chill, but still a great hike with a clear view!

Not quite a hike...  Sucess!

Drove from Connecticut after Thanksgiving to tag this easy highpoint. At least to make it more interesting, it was raining hard, so I climbed this in full-on autumn conditions...

windy  Sucess!

Drove over from Scranton, PA for my 6th state highpoint. It was very windy and quite cold up top. We couldn't believe how few people were there - we only saw 5 other visitors. We only hiked from the parking lot, but we did take a nice little hike around the swamp in the park.

Concession stand  Sucess!

Nice quick side trip during a long run on the AT. Bought two grilled cheese sandwiches and filled water bottles at the concession stand.

HP #15  Sucess!

It was rather windy when we got up there. No obelisk ascent, as it was closed for winter. But not bad looking for a highpoint!

Came through here years ago  Sucess!

on my way to Bear Mountain with a group of backpackers in '69, '70 and '71. It was always hot and about to rain!

Surprisingly Nice  Sucess!

I didn't even know that New Jersey had a highpoint (lol). The views were a great surprise.

Nice obelisk  Sucess!

I just wish it hadn't been cloudy/foggy. No views whatsoever. Oh well, highpoint # 9 for me.

Nice HP, But Windy!!!  Sucess!

When I reached this HP, storm clouds were quickly moving in and the wind was really picking up speed. I like the summit obelisk/ monument. I could even see it a few times many miles away, after leaving High Point State Park.
This was the sixth of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #30 for me. 60% complete!!! Woohoo!!!

HP #15  Sucess!

I originally planned to do the 4 mile or so hike on this one, but as I got closer it started pouring down rain. I'm not big on rain, so I just went ahead and did the drive up to this one. Pretty impressive monument for such a little high point!

HP #17 - drive up!  Sucess!

I let my car do most of the work on this one. It's a nice view from there.

In A Fog  Sucess!

Hey its Jersey! Was in a fog but it broke up and was able to see a bit from the top of the monument. My legs ached for a week after climbing the stairs to the observation level.
