Ebright Azimuth, Delaware State High Point

July 3rd, 2013
Distance: 0 miles 
Time: 10 minutes
Year to date miles: 156
Map: none
Parking: Side street
Post hike dinner: none
Restrooms: none
Directions: Intersection of Ebright Road and Ramblewood Drive, Wilmington, DE
Notes: It has been too hot to hike, so instead of finding a hike on our way down to Maryland, we decided to stop and see the Delaware State High Point. Elevation is 448'. We spent more time deciding where to park, than it took to actually walk to the sign. There is a high point sign with a bench to sit at next to it (it was super hot, so we did sit down!).  We had problems finding the geodetic marker. Luckily a man driving by asked us if we were looking for it, and told us where to find it. It is right next to a telephone pole, on the same side of the street as the sign. In the Wikipedia article, the sign and marker are shown on opposite sides of the street, so it looks like the sign has been moved since then.
