Elevation – 345 feet above Sea Level

The view from “atop” Britton Hill at Lakewood Park, Florida’s Highest Point.  It is hard to tell, but that is cotton ready for harvest at the bottom of the hill.

I’ve been passing the sign for this on Hwy 331 in Paxton, Florida for years and finally followed the signs to this place.  It’s quite the dubious honor for Florida tourism.  However, just a stones throw from the park was the abandoned church that was worth the shoot.

One thought on “Elevation – 345 feet above Sea Level

  1. Being from the hills (our house is at 700 feet, and we’re not very far up), it’s hard for me to fathom this. My college roomie was from Ft Lauderdale (she called it Ft Liquordale), and she told me the common saying there was that the highest elevation in that area was the 10th St bridge. Does 10th St have a bridge??
