Highpoints of Life  Sucess!

Just catching up to logging "summits" after seeing recommended sites to visit.
Part of a highpointing adventure through PA with TrailtrekerDawg.
Had to carry the pooch up the tower to enjoy the view.

Better than expected  Sucess!

After turning off of road 2002, my rental car wouldn't make it up the snow covered road, so I enjoyed a nice, quiet hike through the snow. I was surprised to see a few locals who had driven to the top, as well as a couple hiking up from the same point I had. HP35

Enjoyable jaunt  Sucess!

Better than a drive up, but not exactly taxing either. It was deserted and the view from the tower was pretty good. Scared up a few pheasants as well.

Rainy, No Visibility  Sucess!

After driving in a rain storm from Backbone Mountain to Mount Davis in the rain it was nice to finally reach the 3rd state HP in 24 hrs. Unfortunately there was no visibility from the summit tower.

Lots of reading material  Sucess!

Plenty of plaques to read on the top. Came back in April 2009 with my kids and slogged through the mud along the trail to the top.

My 1st Highpoint  Sucess!

I grew up in PA and decided that this was a good place to start "highpointing". Traveled to PA for a week long camping/ adventure/ homesick cure trip. Beautiful drive thru rural PA to this summit. Very easy to find and empty when I got there. Climbed the firetower and almost got blown off by the wind. Nice spot on the earth.

Great HP  Sucess!

Had a little confusion finding the actual HP. Turned out I just didnt go far enough down the road saw the Maryland HP road sign and didnt drive past it to the road leading to the actual HP. Once we found it. Great HP, climbed the fire tower.

Drifts of Snow  Sucess!

Trudged for 2 hours to reached the "summit" and back again in yard-deep snow. No snowshoes, so the going was slow but challenging. The trees were clothed in white and bent low under the weight of frost, obscuring the trail.

HP #23  Sucess!

The last of the Allegheny trifecta that I climbed. Climbing the tower was a bit more nerve racking than I had anticipated, but got some great pictures whilt up there.
