Garrett County Highpoint Trip Report

Hoye Crest on Backbone Mtn

One of the reasons I've started to take up hiking is to get in better shape. This easy hike up Backbone showed me I had a ways to go. I'd parked a little up the trail next to a deer carcass. Next time, I'll just keep it by the road. It was tough going at first but I don't give up easily. I met a family of highpointers on the way down.

My favorite shot from here is one with a rock with a perfectly circular-shaped hole.
