Highpoint: Pennsylvania. Mt. Davis (3213 ft). June 12, 2010

After a lovely visit with Grandmom and Granddad, the girls and I headed out to do three highpoints in one day: PA, MD, and WV.

First, Pennsylvania.

The drive west was faster than I anticipated; no traffic and clear roads made for easy driving. Once we got into the general area, we entered Amish country and slowly (being careful of horses and buggies) made our way toward the summit road.

The road was gentle and well paved. We passed a lovely picnic ground on the way up.

The road continues...

...until it reaches a parking lot. Here's the gravel path to the actual highpoint...

...which is a boulder at the summit.

Nearby stood a tower, which we naturally climbed.

The day was overcast, we only had views in one direction.

We climbed down, then began a short drive south.

Next stop: Maryland.
