HP# 4  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 1 of 9 during this trip.) Pretty unspectacular HP with little to no view, still cool though.

High Point #20  Sucess!

Nice high point done in conjunction today with Ohio's. Nice little spot next to some farm land and in a little forested spot. Some freezing rain but all in all nice. No hike at all either but I suppose check it off the list and at least there was some nature!

HP #43  Sucess!

Of the 48 highpoints I have visited, this one ranks up there with Mississippi as the most disappointing high points. I mean, ya gotta visit each one, but Indiana takes no pride in their highest point. Not even sure it’s the highest point. More of a tiny little section of farmland that they didn’t want to sacrifice, and it really has an attitude of, “well I guess they’re going to make us say we have a highpoint so we gotta do something.”

Highpoint #19  Sucess!

An unremarkable drive-up HP, but enjoyed the typical Indiana cornfield as I'm not from the region. Some decent markers. In the middle of nowhere, nice change from the busier roads of Ohio, Delaware, and Rhode Island's HPs.

Indiana Hoosier Hill

Evening visit on a warm and sunny day. Highpoint just off the road and in the woods. Nice marker/sign.

Nice winter trip  Sucess!

Nice stop on the way to Arizona. Easy to find, and a good place to stop for lunch.

Daring Pre-Dawn Assault  Sucess!

Got up very early on my trip to the Appalachians and had some issues finding this in the dark - but succeeded.

Cold and isolated  Sucess!

Heading on a road trip around the southeast. Decided to try for various state high points. This one is, actually, delightful. I'm so glad the property owners welcoming visitors.

Highpoint # 24  Sucess!

Headed to Ohio since i still had vacation days to burn before the end of this year (thank you covid ... sigh). Second of two highpoints completed this trip.

Hoosier Hill - Highpoint #2  Sucess!

Highpoint #2 in our home state was super easy to get to. Google will take you there accurately. There's a register here as well. We only wish we would have brought a picnic lunch to enjoy there.

Let's go Blues!  Sucess!

On my way to watch a "Thanksgiving-eve" Blues game in Columbus back in 2006, I bagged my first non-MO high point at Hoosier Hill.

1 of 2  Sucess!

We made a 14.5 hour 725 mile round trip from Illinois to bag this and Campbell Hill today. Though we were not the first to crest the peak for this day. The mosquitoes took a few minutes to find us, but we got in a some pictures and headed off to the next leg of our journey before volunteering too much blood. Road signs for the highpoint confirmed what our Google girlfriend was telling us. The weather was fantastic for this journey.

Very nicely kept.  Sucess!

HP#3. This highpoint is in the middle of nowhere very close to the Ohio State line near Darke County. It is in the middle of a very large farm inside a small grove of trees on a slightly elevated knoll. We read that it is privately owned and the owners are happy to have visitors. It is only about 50 feet off of the road. We were uncertain about the parking situation because the ground was snow covered. Inside the knoll was a picnic table, park bench, fire ring, large engraved stone and mailbox that contains the registration notebook and keepsake visitor card. Very clean and well kept.
