Ebright Azimuth, Delaware (448')

My "highpointing" trip for 2010 was an ambitious one. I set out with my girlfriend, Stephenie Steitzer, to visit the 9 state highpoints of New England over the course of a week. The hardest part was the logistics of visiting such a large area in such a short amount of time. It is amazing, but we were able to squeeze it all in with time to spare for visiting relatives, seeing some sights along the way, and some R&R at a beautiful boutique hotel in Maine. Feasting on lobsters and soaking in some luxury was a great end to an amazing trip. A trip that began with the highpoint in Delaware.

We flew into Philadelphia airport, grabbed a rental car, and set out. A little over an hour later we were after navigating through the suburbs and found ourselves parking in front of someone's house. The actual highpoint is located in a small park in a housing development. Definitely the most heavily populated highpoint. Something just doesn't quite feel right about it.

The seemingly unusual name is derived from its location along Ebright Road, located only approximately 500' horizontal distance from the Delaware-Pennsylvania border. Officially recognized as having an elevation of only 448', Ebright Azimuth is the second-lowest State Highpoint (only approximately 100' higher than Florida's State Highpoint, Britton Hill). The highpoint is a virtual drive-up and can be visited year-round.

The next stop was visiting family in Pennsylvania and then on to New Jersey.
