Ebright Azimuth, Delaware (448)

10th High Point Visited
49th Highest State High Point
49th Most Difficult

1st high point with Homeyra as well as first out of Columbus road trip! Drove from Columbus to Wilmington, Delaware (470 miles) on Friday night leaving by 4:00pm, arriving at Bed & Breakfast called Darley Manor Inn Bed & Breakfast. We didn't arrive till after 11pm after driving 7 hours straight in the BMW Z3 which I had won as a sales promotion for the week from MOM. We had the top down from start till about 59 degrees half way through Pennsylvania. Lot's of cops, but dodged them with radar! We arrived and were amazed by the antiques about the place. The inn keeper invited us in and showed us to our room on the second floor. We awoke to a wonderful breakfast at 8:00am that we had ordered the night before. We were entertained by another couple that were guests and also the owner who was from North Carolina. We looked at the local maps and realized we were only a couple miles away from the HP, Ebright Azimuth, 448ft. This is the lowest HP in the states next only to Florida. Arriving at the sight was anti climatic. We found a sign on the corner of the road, no marker for this HP. We took several photos, and as we drove away Homeyra read about the history of the HP. On then to DC for the Marine Corps Marathon.
