HP #12  Sucess!

Arrived 1.5 hrs after sunset. Strong wind made for a chilly "climb". Google's gps was right on, took some nice pics in the dark but didn't linger due to the biting cold. Lots of UFOs in the sky

Road Trip!  Sucess!

Nice day drive out from Golden CO. I blew it and used my truck's GPS system for directions rather than the Summitpost beta. A little more scenic than I planned! Barbed wire fence gates and cows!

Hp 15  Sucess!

If I recall this one was in the middle of nowhere but the spot was marked with a cool metal sunflower.

Nice spot!  Sucess!

Delightful, peaceful place with amazing cloud formations. 90 degrees and a bit buggy with flies during our visit. The covered picnic table made a nice lunch spot. #39 for me, #26 for Lillian, #10 for John, #9 for Barb. Fun road trip!

Beautiful Sunshiny Day  Sucess!

Gorgeous summer day. Not a cloud in the sky. Although no sunflowers were blooming this early, we happened to picked a weekend where all the cacti in the area (including the summit area) had huge yellow flowers. Also, surprisingly pretty views of the prairie-lands from the summit.

State HP #7

Cows  Sucess!

Got stopped by a state trooper on the way in and won a pricey ticket for speeding, but made it to the high point without much confusion. Stalked some cows on the prairie.

Loved the Sunflower setup  Sucess!

The actual High Point monument itself was my favorite so far. Otherwise, just rolling farms around us, similar to Nebraska. State HP #22

HP #22  Sucess!

A great little setup. Nice, considering it's a long ride with no hike to speak of.

2nd of the day  Sucess!

some sunflowers by the road, but not any at the actual high point. Good reward for a nice long day of driving.

A hot day in Kansas  Sucess!

A scorcher of a day - 100's throughout the region. But a nice drive along quite a few dusty roads that my gps didn't know about, and I somehow managed to find it - then relied on instinct to get me on a main road back to Colorado...

Cool artwork there, signed the log... I wonder if anyone really checks those things or does anything with them...

#6  Sucess!

Atleast all the dirt roads were fairly smooth. Worth seeing a part of the country that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

Nice drive  Sucess!

We parked at the cattle guard so we would at least have a nice walk to stretch our legs. This “summit” fits in the category of a drive across country we otherwise wouldn’t have seen.
