easy day  Sucess!

First of three high points for the day. Hiked up from the picnic area and it was easy, which is good because all the running around in the Catskills earlier in the week gave me a nasty cold. Nice observation tower and plaque area.

Sixth HP  Sucess!

A bit tricky to find, at least from the directions Google gave me, but well worth it. The exhibits near the tower are very interesting and the tower itself affords a great view. Very pretty part of the country.

HP #5  Sucess!

Second Highpoint of the day, went to Backbone Mountain, Maryland earlier in the day and Spruce Knob the day before. Make sure to climb the observation tower for some good views.

Great View  Sucess!

Nice area of the country to visit. I passed a small Amish convoy on the way there - drive slowly on those country roads...

Amish Guys  Sucess!

The signs for this HP are deceiving. Those Amish are tricksters.

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.
