Highpoint #2: Campbell Hill, OH

The Korbines family set out on our very first road trip this weekend. Our goal: hit 2 high-points and visit friends in Columbus.

We realized that the grounds on which the hill is located closed at 10pm... so we raced through the rainstorm to get there before 10 o'clock. 9:55 rolled around, and we pulled through the gate (and hoped it didn't close with us inside!)

Well, here are a few terrible pictures taken in the pitch black pouring rain!

but failed.
So we took this really attractive one in the car instead.

So there you go, our second highpoint! More to come soon!
