A beautiful, laid back area, Willl come back and make a day hiking arouund the area.
Climbed both towers
#7 for me. the best part is we climbed with some wonderful friends. the day was beautiful, weather was gorgeous.
Had a fun time seeing the Great NorthWoods of Wisconsin. It's a very scenic area.
First highpoint of many!!!
I love the Midwest in autumn!
There were only about two signs marking the highpoint. One in a small town named Prentice, and the other leading into the county park. Easy hike after we had found it, though.
Hit Timms Hill on our way to Maine. Also hit Mt. Arvon in Michigan later that day.
Another ok high point - nice towers and pretty good pie at the hill of beans
Fun little trip over the holiday weekend, but the clouds and fog made for a no view from the tower. Had the place to myself.
In 2 days I got my first 2 HPs. Not the greatest time of year to visit N. Wisconsin but succesful. This is my home state HP.
Half-day outing from Minneapolis
My ninth state highpoint. Very short but I enjoyed climbing both of the towers. Much nicer views from the steel one because you are over the tree line. Very nice people at the Mountain Village, be sure to try the carmel collision ice cream!
Vanessa and I drove up from Barrington Hills, IL to tag our 4th of my 49 state high points and her 39. For good measure, we stopped by Rib Mountain (1940 feet, and previously identified as Wisconsin's highpoint) on the way home.
climbed the radio tower as recommended--that was some freaky exposure without a harness or anything! it was nice to finally get to the top of my home state...
Hiked from the parking lot (up the east side) shortly after hiking Pearson Hill 15 minutes earlier. My son Travis was with me-this was his 5th state highpoint.
A quick stop on the way for Christmas with the fam. Quite a remarkable amount of snow on the ground for the time of year...must have been close to 2 feet! Snow coming down good when we started out but cleared for some nice views at the top. Tower is gonna need another floor soon as the trees block quite a bit of the scenery, but still nice.
Hiked with my wife to the summit. There were low clouds so there were no views to speak of but still an interesting place. When you are from Colorado you appreciate the trees more I guess. We headed over and did Pearson Hill as well. We found a benchmark on its summit with an elevation of 1950.50 feet. You never know....
Family HP'ing trip #3 - with Tracy (wife), Alex (son), and Gabbie (daughter, and her 2nd HP). Drive to parking lot, easy walk to summit and tower.
Following the short hike to the highpoint, we enjoyed the view from the tower, then hiked past a Christmas tree farm to the "Prayer Cabin". From there, we hiked around "Swan Lake" before returning to the parking lot. HP13
