Susan and leave for the Northeastern part of America tomorrow and we plan to nail 8 state highpoints in 17 days while taking in the fall colors this area is famous for. Most of the highpoints in this part of the country are fairly easy, but it is a very ambitious travel schedule. I’m actually surprised that Susan agreed to it at all as she generally prefers a more leisurely pace, while I like to get things done. At any rate, we’ve been married 21 years and hopefully still will be when we get back.
We leave September 27th and will return October 12th. and here is a Google Map Link showing the path between each state highpoint.
The Highpoint List
Ebright Azimuth, DE (HP #1)
High Point, NJ (HP #2)
Mt. Frissell – South Slope, CT (HP #3)
Mt Greylock, MA (HP#4)
Jerimoth Hill, RI (HP#5)
Mt. Mansfield, VT (HP#6)
Mt. Washington, NH (HP#7)
Mt. Katahdin, ME (HP#8)
Susan enjoys hiking and will do most of these with me except for Katahdin and one or two others. My old friend and climbing partner Rick Overholt will be joining me for Katahdin. It’s a serious climb that will take 2-3 days and we plan to take the aptly named Knife Edge route which is said to be breathtakingly beautiful this time of year.
I’ll be running the Satellite and iPhone Tracking both for this trip.
