We left my cousin's place in Columbus and were heading out to Denver and South Dakota for a vacation and to see America. This was our second High Point of the trip out of five. Next stop, St. Louis for BBQ and to see the Arch.
This place had the shortest approach of any high point I've done--I practically hopped out of my car and onto the summit. It was cloudy when I was there, but I bet it's beautiful on a clear day. Nice job, Indiana, and thanks to the owners for allowing access!
Quick and easy. HP #24... First one in 5 years!
One of my first purposeful highpoints. Got my wife to stop with me on the way to chicago...roller coaster road was pretty cool on the way there if you go fast enough. ...and of course the epic highpoint
Ha, I'm logging my highpoints on summitpost and couldn't forget hoosier hill... looks like you beat me to it...logging that is. Your kid sounds like a real a-hole :)
Family finally came along: "Dad, highpointing is dumb, drive all this way for this." Ha. Gotta teach 'em the drive is half the fun.
Summitted with Kate, second of a 6 HP trip. The corn looked pretty poor compared to the fields back home. Nice high point!
If it weren't for the rock sticking up out of the ground it would be hard to discern that any one point in the area was any high than another. Drove from here to Missouri to do Taum Sauk.
Not really an HP'er... but I was in Columbus on business and couldn't resist.
Nice stop alongside corn fields.
Happy to check off another state during our venture through Ohio to Campbell Hill.
Beautiful area and great drive!
We drove over to Hoosier Hill from Ohio, where we had "summited" Campbell Hill earlier in the day. The directions from Summitpost were spot on, and we parked just outside the forested area from summit monument and mailbox. Very quiet and peaceful there. A family joined us as we took our pics from our last state HP from a 9 state swing. Sad to end our trip, but happy to be one state HP closer! State HP #43....
Spring has sprung in Indiana - nice bed of ground cover flowers just beginning to bloom at the marker and mailbox.
Unfortunately I did this one on a VERY snowy day. Slipped off the road and had to wait for a tow truck for 3 hours. Luckily I was listening to a soccer game at the time so I was entertained.
Indiana in the bag.
"Summited" with my wife (No. 12). Nice HP, now with a stone marker. Large corn field adjacent. Second HP today (Ohio).
Nice little day trip from Port Huron, MI via Campbell Hill in Ohio and Champaign Cty HP in Ohio. Really enjoyed the countryside.
Really nice highpoint area! Also did the Randolph CHP while we were in the area.
Out of no where a huge blizzard came rolling through on this spring day making the drive from Campbell Hill far more adventurous than I had expected. it stopped snowing when I arrived and i got some cool photos of the nearby field. I wish it was warmer so I could have hung out on this pleasant little HP but oh well I had to drive as fast I could to airport so I didn't get stuck in Indiana overnight. Made it safely HP #27
