Quick trip  Sucess!

I was in DC for some meetings and wanted to pick up the 3 state highpoints in the area so I did a whilwind tour of WV, PA, and MD.

Backward Climb  Sucess!

My family was on vacation in nearby Black Water Falls State Park and decided to climb this mountain. Actually did it in reverse. Since we could not find a hiking trail on the drive up, we started at the top, hiked down and then back up to our car.

Nice trip!  Sucess!

Beautiful park. It was 75F and breezy at the top, probably 95F in the valley. Highly recommend the side trip to Spruce Knob Lake. The dogs had a great time swimming in it!

Nice drive  Sucess!

I have to give credit for the ascent to my Toyota truck. It did all the work! Been here many times.

Winter Wonderland  Sucess!

A recent snow storm made the drive to the top an adventure. There was quite a bit of snow above about 4,000 feet. The short walk to the summit tower was nice with the trees to block the wind. Once at the tower the winds and below freezing temperatures made it feel like the middle of January - not October.

#20  Sucess!

Last day of a weeklong trip. Conference in Cleveland, surprised by the beauty of Ohio. Spruce Knob was 5th state and 25th county HP of the trip. Wonderful views; Mt Porte Crayon, Weiss Knob, Potomac valley and the Alleghany front. What a beautiful country we live in. Now over to my last county at Snowshoe and then the 300+ mile trip home (2100+ miles for the week) May take awhile to do the state HP's (Took me 17 years to do #20), too many places to go.

Drove Up  Sucess!

This was the first of three highpoints for the day (WV, MD, PA). It was a beautiful day! Clear, brisk, and windy. I had the entire summit to myself. Great views! HP #23.

In rain - and a car  Sucess!

Had tons of rain, so I wimped out and drove it. The walk to the lookout and area was wet. Would like to go back someday!

Highpoint  Sucess!

Long drive through winding roads.. Does this state have a straight road anywhere? :)

Short hike up in fog  Sucess!

That WV mud sticks like crazy, went to my uncle's house afterwards and hosed off all I could while he was at work. When he got home he said, "That's awful dirty, you should use my hose and wash it off."

Nice View  Sucess!

Drove up and walked the short path to the tower to enjoy the view. Nice change of pace between climbing Seneca Rocks and the Nelson Rocks Via Ferrata. Beautiful "Almost Heaven" country.
