It was unusually cool for a late May weekend in Ohio, but the gates were open to the top. It was a nice way for our 15 month old son, the wife and I to begin our high point journey. Only 49 states left!!!!!!!!! Learning experiences: next time were taking with us- binoculars, picnic lunch, cloths for warmer/cooler temps, and our camera. If we had to buy a disposable camera like we did today for all 50 high points, that alone would cost us about $400.
