In April 2016 we flew to New York City to visit our son, who is a student there. We went a day before he was available so that we could do a little traveling to neighboring states. Bob had several items on his bucket list that he wanted to cross off.
We flew into JFK and picked up a rental car, then got on our way.
It was fun to see one of the famous Brooklyn exit signs. Brooklyn has a very unique personality, that's for sure.
It was a beautiful day for a drive, and we had 135 miles to go to our first destination.
We were on our way to to Delaware high point, 6.5 miles north of downtown Wilmington in northern New Castle County and within a few feet of the Pennsylvania state line. We made several wrong turns on the final approach. It's not like we could see a mountain, a hill, or even a rise in front of us. Eventually we found this robin's egg blue sign:
I wouldn't say the Delaware High Point was the high point of our trip, but it has its own kooky appeal.
It looks like hyacinths do well at high elevations like 447.85 feet above sea level. I was glad to have something to look at:
Only Florida's high point (345 feet above sea level) sits at a lower elevation that Delaware's.
