Highpoint: Illinois. Charles Mound (1235 ft). August 7, 2010

The owners of Charles Mound restrict public access to the first weekends of June, July, August and September, so the girls and I had a week to kill before highpointing Illinois. We spent a few days hanging about Michigan's Upper Peninsula before heading down through Wisconsin. A few more days at the Dells, and it was time to begin the last leg of our highpoint spree.

The first Saturday in August arrived. We drove to the property's edge, parked at the gate, and began the mile and a quarter walk to the summit.

It's a lovely amble, we enjoyed the rural setting.

Views from the top of Illinois.

Next stop: Indiana.
