I visited Driskill Mountain (535') in February 2007 on my way home, driving my new Audi A6 from Texas to my home in Kentucky. I planned to stop by both the highpoint of Louisiana and Mississippi on my way home, completing my visitation to all of the southern state high points. The weather was pretty warm for February and a bit overcast. The short .6 miles to the summit felt great on my legs, still stiff from the long drive. I had fun taking lots of pictures on my way up and after reaching the summit. While doing so, I couldn't help but think the area was beautiful even though the trees were bare of leafs. It reminded me much more of Arkansas than it did Louisiana. The summit is nicely marked with a beautiful lacquered bench and bulletin board. I can't wait to visit Driskell Mountain again sometime during a different season.
