      After leaving Elkins, West Virginia, having visited Spruce Knob the pervious day, we headed up U.S. 219 to Maryland’s highest point.

      We had to drive buy the forest service road a couple of times before we noticed the sign on a tree for Maryland’s highpoint. The chain across the road was down, so we drove a short distance up the road to a clearing and parked there. I enjoyed this highpoint, because it took some effort to get there. I thought it was a very nice hike up to the summit.

      As soon as we got to the summit, a helicopter came up from the valley, as if it were checking us out.

      When we got back down to U.S. 219, a group from Pennsylvania was preparing to hike up to the summit.

      Summit number 4 for me, and number 2 for my high school friend. Now, on to Pennsylvania!
