Yeah, but being tied for the 121st highest point in the state just doesn't sound as impressive.

I'm a firm believer that change in elevation is more fun than just hanging out on a high point.

5th highest named hill. Earn me any credit?

I was thinking it was a high point for some other reason.

Hmmmm, is that why it is called Highland HS?

I think my house is at 1250'.

300' & 50 miles north shouldn't make much difference, but my weather is always a little harsher than what C'Bus gets.

Yes. The hill at the end of CR 16 is named Hulse Hill. The highest point on my property, according to Garmin

Top of the mound I live on is 1270ft. Darn near the highest point in Clark county. Don't know if it's still considered part of the all mighty Bellfountain ridge or not? But I take comfort knowing Columbus will drowned before I do.

The Bellefontaine Outlier is made up of Devonian-age (408-360 million years old) Columbus Limestone, whereas Clark County is mostly Silurian (438-408 myo) and Ordovician (508-438 myo) rocks. Two different formations.



A detailed article on the Outlier can be found here: http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/Portals/1...r/Winter91.pdf

One of my other hobbies is fossil collecting.

So how many feet do I have to dig until I'm into the Neapolitan ice cream layer?

Its pretty amazing how flat Ohio is, very little elevation change. The lowest point is 455 ft at the Ohio and Miami Rivers. So about 1100 ft difference.
Geauga county in NEO is pretty high over all with most of it above 1200 ft and the highest point at 1396 which is said to be tied for second highest point in the state. This is what causes the "snow belt". However due to glaciation most of the elevation changes are gradual and nothing can really be called a hill.
The "hilly" south east does not have big elevation changes on a macro scale but there are lots of small steep elevation changes that make it more interesting for riding.

Craig

BTW GPS units are pretty poor in elevation accuracy compared to location accuracy.

The damn thing wallows so much anyhow, that's why it didn't seem unusual to only have 3 psi in the front tire....

I know, I had to take that picture quick because it swings like 50 ft in either direction as I walk around my property. Going by a real topo map, my house is at 1378' above sea level. I use the high altitude directions when I make brownies....
