High point #3  Sucess!

One of 3 high points in a day (MD, PA, WV). Beautiful area. The tower is more rickety than it looks but has great views. The surrounding trail isn't well maintained but is very nice. The USGS marker for the mountain is atop one of the boulders by the tower.

Parking area and Trail covered in Ice and Snow  Sucess!

3/3 HP today. The views from the overlooks and at the top of the structure were stunning. It was a bright sunny day 20deg F and no wind. The road conditions all the way up were not good, 6=12" of snow and ice. The trail likewise was snow and ice covered. Even the steps leading to the top of the tower were a bit icy...

HP #25!  Sucess!

My personal halfway mark with the state highpointing. Simple, not-too-difficult drive to the summit parking lot. Very green summit. I noticed a day later that the views are similar to Spruce Knob's in West Virginia.

Almost drive up  Sucess!

Got a flat tire on the drive to the trailhead, so took the easy way up since I'd already run out of daylight. Pranced around the rocks near the lookout tower to make sure I got the right one, then jogged back to the car to keep on driving. State HP #18

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!
