Ascent Trip ReportVisited one of the highest Indiana summits in November of 1999 with my then-girlfriend (and now my wife :) We travelled from Northern Indiana down to Brown County for a day trip on a beautiful early November day. I think it was in the 70's that day if I remember right. We had a good time exploring some of the great overlooks in the park before returning home. A completely different story would be the food poisoning that I suffered through on the way home and throughout that night which I got from a Bloomington, IN Taco Bell. That was the last day I ever ate anything from Taco Bell and I vowed never to have any for as long as I live!!! I've never felt that ill in my life and really felt like I was dying for about 4-5 hours. Just about the time I was going to go to the hospital I started to recover. It was a nice park though and would love to go back sometime so I can maybe have happier memories of visiting. Apparently the high point is right next to the tower. At the time of visiting I didn't realize it was actually the county high point. From other trip accounts it seems this is the actual high point for Brown County, Indiana even though 2 other nearby spots are listed on cohp.org.
