Ascent Trip ReportContinuing on spring break trip- drove from Driskill Mountain, LA to New Orleans; stayed in city for a couple of days to see the sights; took 2 1/2 hour kayak trip through a bayou with Manchac Mystic Kayak Tour - saw alligators, really fun! On to Florida panhandle-Emerald Coast driving through Mississippi and Alabama. Arrived in Fort Walton Beach on Tuesday, March 6. Enjoyed coast area; left on March 8 and drove to Lakewood Park and Britton Hill. Took group photo at summit monument, signed register, then walked various paths into the woods reaching both H/P club benches and older red bench. Bushwhacked off trails a few times to be certain we touched highest ground within the perimeter and other paths following COHP and Covill directions to highest ground. My iPhone compass and elevation registered higher ground than at monument. US state highpoint #39.
