Eric and I headed out to
last weekend to bag a couple of state high points. The HP in IL (Charles Mound) is privately owned and only accessible on weekends in the summer. Most of the dates conflicted with races so we settled for the final weekend for the 2011 season. I worked out a plan that would have us also “climbing” Hawkeye Point, the HP in IA. Minnesota
We had a really long drive back to
so we broke it up with another 6 mile run. We stopped in the town of Minneapolis Guttenburg IA and ran along the Mississippi river on a levee that had some nice views of the area. We reached our hotel in the late afternoon having covered 538 miles that day.
