On our way home Sunday, J & I hiked to the highest point in CT, which is on the way up Mt. Frissell (in Mass) at a whopping 2,380 feet.This was a nice, short hike (3ish miles), but it was hotter than hell. This was our 10th high point. Sometimes finding the trailhead to the high point is the hardest part and this was no exception. The trailhead was tucked deep in the woods of CT (so much so that you didn’t even know you were still in CT) and did not have any signage. So it took some guesswork. But it all worked out.
Here’s another example about difficulty in getting to a high point. J & I are flying out to Chi-town tomorrow. We booked the annual Mother’s Day trip with one extra day so we could hit Charles Mound, the “high” point of IL. We started planning the specific logistics this week and found out the property owners (the high point is on private property) have restricted access to only 8 days a year. Do you think those 8 days include Thursday, May 6? Nope.
