HP #21  Sucess!

Pretty funny; we were asking directions to the owner where the HP stands and he had absolutely no idea of what we were talking about... His neighbor gave us the proper directions and got us back to his land!!
No sign there when we went but they have renovated the whole place... We went back this last summer

Route Climbed: Elliot Road  Sucess!

Driving from Boston to Terre Haute, saw that it was really close to the highway and decided to stop by it. The rollercoaster of a road out to it was fun. The highpoint itself not to interesting, but it was a great way to get off the interstate and see the real Indiana.

Complete waste of time-never again  Sucess!

My employer sent me to Indianapolis for some training. We had free weekend and my co-worker wanted to visit Hoosier Hill while I wanted to visit some caves. Unfortunately, I let the co-worker (whom shall remain nameless) have the final say and we went to Hoosier Hill.

It’s not even a hill and I’ll never forgive my co-worker for this. This is the single most disappointing and sorriest excuse for a hill I’ve seen in my life! Needless to say, I will never go there again.

(No offence to anyone whom might actually like this place, but I didn't in the least).

Hoosier Highpoint  Sucess!

The road leading up to this highpoint is a great road. It was very pretty, full of great fall colors. It's bumpy too, like a roller coaster. The highpoint area is really cleaned up nice. It's very peaceful and quiet. Looked very nice too in the fall. A cool highpoint.

Easy visit. Now back to Chicago.

HP  Sucess!

Taking scenic route to Cleveland, bagging some state and county highpoints. Strange hobby, driving to stand in the midst of a grove of trees in nowheres Indiana. A wonderful way to see country, meet people and visit areas I wouldn't see otherwise. Ate apple and enjoyed. State #16.

#6  Sucess!

My brother and I were driving I-70 from Colorado to Pennsylvania, and since it's so close to the interstate, we had to make the stop. It was my 6th highpoint, and I think it was my brother's 12th.

Hardest summit on the planet  Sucess!

Walked right up to this one, and had to investigate the mailbox in the middle of nowhere. I was going after the geocache located in the same spot, I signed the log book.

12th of 13 state highpoints for me  Sucess!

I was in Dayton, Ohio for a conference and took an early morning sidetrip into Indiana to bag this highpoint at 8:15 AM. I bagged Campbell Hill in Ohio the next morning with a friend/coworker, Bristol Ellington.

While on vacation to the state of my birth and life until age 23, I proceeded to Hoosier Hill, a nicely kept State Highpoint. Glad to say that I've looked down upon all those in Indiana.

Highpoint #13. Took turns driving all the way out & back with a similarly-crazed fellow highpointer from MA, just to bag IN & OH.

Reached the summit during the Cops on Top high point challenge to remember the police officers who lost their lives during the 9-11 attacks. Officers from around the country reached their states high points in memorial of the fallen.

Route Climbed: 100 Yard Dash from Car Date Climbed: August 2003  Sucess!

I grew up only 15 miles from the highest point in Indiana. However, it took me 30 years to get there. The summit was a great family experience with my Colorado cousins making the journey to the peak. We were mistaken by the false summit of the adjacent cornfield before we found the ID sign along the roadside. Wow! What a view of Indiana woodlands from the summit.

I liked the sign and the steps over the fence.

Route Climbed: There was a route? Date Climbed: May 28, 2003  Sucess!

Wife and I summitted this beast in record time. This was our 4th high point, though high and point are not words I was thinking of at the time of summitting. More like fields, trees & bugs. Highpointing though does take you to areas of the country I know I would never have gone to see on my own. God's creation is good even in the flatlands.
