Not quite as high as High Point State Park in my home state of New Jersey, but much more tranquil. We made a stop at Cerro Catedral on our way back to Montevideo. The trip to the zenith of Uruguay was a very pleasant ride along Hwy 109. A right turn off of the main highway leads to the Cerro. It's a dirt road, but kept neat and graded. We stopped along the way to take pictures and visit the cattle and sheep along the way. During our drive up to Cerro Catedral, we only came across two cars traveling in the opposite direction. One begins to realize just how uncrowded the small country of Uruguay is. Once at Catedral, a weather-worn sign, lots of livestock and a series of green energy windmills will greet you. It's a nice place for a family picnic, but make sure you select a dung-free patch of grass. If you feel energetic and agile, climb the ridge and take in the panoramic view of the gentle, rolling hills used for grazing sheep and cattle. Enjoy the highest point in Uruguay for what it is... a natural, almost untouched piece of real estate in the interior of Uruguay. I plan on returning because I bookmarked the spot in my Garmin.
