Drenched to the Bone  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I did the 3 mile hiking loop up high point trail and then down shelter rock trl back to the picnic area. On the way down the shelter rock trl we got caught in a killer rainstorm and were drenched to the bone by the time we got to the car. As soon as we got to the car, of course, it quit raining and the sun came out:)

HP #2, Spruce Knob is next!

Highpoint #3  Sucess!

6-8 inches of snow along the trail, nice little winter hike.

HP #2  Sucess!

Not much to write about concerning this Highpoint. The Tower was nice, especially for my 7 year old. A lot of knats on the trail leading to the summit.

# 15  Sucess!

Didn't climb the tower to see the views, but that whole area of PA is nice.

Drive up from Summit Mills  Sucess!

This was the third state highpoint for the day (Maryland and West Virginia earlier). Amazingly there was nobody around on the summit area.

HP #4  Sucess!

I (with my wife (Tracy) and son (Alex), then almost 2 yrs old) did this as part of our first family HP trip.

Yes, we did it as a drive up! There are great views from the observation tower.

I Like The Observation Tower!!!  Sucess!

I really enjoyed the views from the summit Observation Tower. I took photos at the heavily-dented, boulder-mounted U.S. Geological Society disk, as well. Nice hikes all around the area, including an interpretive section.
This was the third of seven HPs (plus Washington, D.C.) I would reach in two days' time. HP #27 for me.

Drive to the top  Sucess!

Drove to the top after a long day on the highway from NYC. Managed to get to the top right at sunset. Hiked around a bit before finding the USGS marker and climbing the tower. Great view from the top, but I think I enjoyed driving through the little villages more than the summit. After a night in a hotel headed to Backbone and Spruce Knob the next morning...with a short stop at the smallest church in the lower 48.

HP #9  Sucess!

Drove to this Highpoint. I've seen much better views in my lifetime, but it is still a highpoint nonetheless. Glad to have this one done.

Best Drive To  Sucess!

This has got to be one of the best drive-to summits. In fall the color was great and the Amish countryside made for a feel of a place back in time. We drove the full circle around the summit before returning to rat race interstate.

3rd HP on the day  Sucess!

Walked up on the Highpoint trail. Kinda of confusinf with different trails intersecting the trail with no markers or signs. Liked the views atop the summit tower though.

MT DAVIS  Sucess!

Stopped by on our way skiing. Pretty good snow dump the night before: 1 - 2 feet blocked the trail. With snowshoes we might have made it, but no such luck.

Cold and Windy  Sucess!

I made the long drive over while in DC for work.

Pretty in the snow  Sucess!

Tough one  Sucess!

The tough part of this is finding the back road to take you to the parking lot. From the parking lot it is just a short hike to the fire tower, and a nice view of the relatively flat, but rolling hills of central Pennsylvania.

Mt Davis  Sucess!

Did the highpoint of my home state on a vacation trip with my parents. The only real memory I have from the mountain was getting a flat tire on the top and having to change it.
