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.

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.

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.

Nice road trip  Sucess!

A pleasant day for a road trip to western PA. A little hazy and warm, but a great day to be outside, none the less.

Liked the observation tower but the views were uninspiring.

first of three  Sucess!

Drove up to the top and then walked to the HP. Below Average Views for PA, much better hikes in the northeast.

Drive Up  Sucess!

Throughly unexciting summit with average view even on a nice day.

Highpoint #14  Sucess!

Beautiful day and the second of three highpoints that day. Really enjoyed it and lunch at "Take Six" in Meyersdale.

Slush and Mud  Sucess!

My dog Spanky and I slogged through slush and mud to the summit.

Fun stop over  Sucess!

Wife and I climbed this peak when we first met! Not too much to look at, but I still love PA mountains. Fun little hike and hey, you have to visit the highest peak in PA if you are near.
