WOODALL MOUNTAIN, MISSISSIPPI (HIGH POINT #30)

Woodall-01 Woodall-02 Woodall-03 Woodall-04

This is the second state high point we have hit on our Easter road trip.  Again I will have my dad write the commentary on our trip today:

We spent the night in Tupelo, Mississippi, and even saw Elvis Presley’s birthplace, home church, and the Hardware store where he bought his first guitar.  Then, it was back onto the Natchez Trace into the extreme northeast corner of the state to Woodall Mountain.  By the time we got there, it was raining.  Thinking back, this is the first time in our 30 state highpoint trips that we had rain (though I do remember some sleet on Mt. Washington in New Hampshire on a July day).  It did not bother us too much, however, as Woodall is essentially a drive-up mountain.  There were a number of communications towers at the summit, pine trees, and a large rock that unfortunately had the sign removed.  We signed the register, and for the second consecutive day we were the second “expedition” of the day to reach the summit.  At 806 feet above sea level, it was certainly higher than Driskill Mountain, but might not qualify as a “mountain” by some standards.  As usual, Mokey tried to get into as many pictures as possible.  For this trip, we hope to bag two more highpoints!
