HP #23  Sucess!

The drive from Coal Center, PA up, and then out through the farm lands was really very pretty, especially this time of year. Tower up top had worthy views. Nice area up there though, well done with lots of history and info. 1st of 4 HP's on this quick appalachian trip.

Larvitour Stop #1  Sucess!

Hiked up from the picnic area. The trail was really wet in places, but not unavoidably so. Nice historical/geological displays at the top, and the view from the tower was good.

THC73  Sucess!

Set out for GeoWoodstock in Boonsboro, Md and stopped by to "climb" my first highpoint. I was able to drive fairly close and I actually climbed to the top of the observation tower to take a pic. Beautiful area here!

HP #6  Sucess!

Stick with your planned route. We took some scenic back roads on the way there and ended up driving on a pretty intense gravel trail. But we survived to tell the tale of a beautiful High Point!

#36  Sucess!

Drove in at 6 a.m.

I'd intended to hike to the summit, but the deep fog and rain made me think otherwise. I chose to expedite this highpoint so as to head for what I'd hoped would be drier air down in Shenandoah.

I had it all to myself but could not see much of anything so I did not linger long.

Never did find the USGS benchmark, which was kind of a bummer...

HP #1  Sucess!

I had graduated from Grove City College that morning and was on my way home. My fiance and I decided to swing by our state's highest point en route. The view from the tower was amazing, but we forgot the camera!

Bad trail map  Sucess!

Wanted to do this as a little bit of a hike. Parked at junction of Wolf Rock Rd and Shelter Rock Road. Wanted to walk Shelter Rock Road (it is closed to cars, just a trail) to the summit. Map suggested going left, but it took us the wrong way. The trail map is messed up I think. Drove to summit after.

Scary Tower  Sucess!

"Hiked" up to the observation tower right around sunset and climbed up (despite a fear that it might disintegrate beneath our feet). Afterwards we spent quite a bit of time searching for the USGS marker only to (finally) figure out that we had been walking right past it the whole time [Hint: it is located at eye-level not foot level so if you are looking down you will never find it] Headed down into northern Maryland afterwards for dinner and pie after a long day with 3 high points!!!

Mount Davis  Sucess!

Highpoint of Pennsylvania.

A cold day...  Sucess!

On a trip to Western Pennsylvania, I decided to do this one again. It had been 6 years since I was there last, so time to do it again. Very cold at the peak, but the coolest thing was the sound the wind made as it blew through the fire tower. The noise was hauntingly beautiful.
