Thank you to everyone who came out to share the beautiful day we had for our Open Hearth Cooking event. We hope you enjoyed the culinary talents and fire skills of the Friends and our group of tireless volunteers. Photos from the day are now available for viewing from our photos page or by clicking here.

Open Hearth Cooking, 2014

High Point State Park is beautiful in the fall. The landscape changes with each passing day. As the leaves turn and cast their fates to the wind, the silhouette of the land is revealed. 

Lusscroft Farm, High Point State Park 

This is a wonderful time of the year to explore the park. The crowds are gone and there is quiet solitude waiting for you. Come take a walk on the trails, sit by the lakes, or watch the clouds go by on the breezy mountaintop. There is something for everyone throughout the year at High Point State Park.

Yoga on the Mountain
The final Yoga on the Mountain class of the 2014 season will take place on Saturday, November 8, 9:30 am to 10:45 am in the High Point State Park Interpretive Center.
 
Yoga on the Mountain
