You park at a parking lot, walk a few hundred feet down a paved path through the woods, and suddenly, in the middle of a dense forest, you come to a plaque that says you're there. The highest point in Missouri. Ostentatiously named Taum Sauk Mountain. You look around, hoping for the awesome view across the mighty state of Missouri. All you see are trees.
Then Florida's is even more worthless. Britton Hill in Lakewood Park - an awe-inspiring 345 feet above sea level. See the glorious Google Street View shots here.
I remember, on some pre-GPS road trip, realizing that the road atlas we had listed the highest point in each state, and I became obsessed with determining which state had the lowest highest point, the one farthest away from any road, the most urban one, etc. Sadly, or perhaps fortunately, my mind does not hold on to much of that "research" any more, but I do distinctly remember Florida's sad little hill.
