Why are you going to the middle of Kansas to stand in a field? Is something I’ve asked myself about a year ago as I drove into the middle of the Sunflower State struggling to find a decent A.M. radio station.
The eventual answer is, that I am ‘high-pointing'.
Now, although high-pointing sounds like something elicit (or legal in some states), it’s simply put going to the highest point in a state, or area. There is the very ‘American’ High-Pointing journey to summit all the 50 (52) states in the U.S. (my list to complete includes territories too). OR a larger feat is the 7(9) major summits in the world. In Colorado, there’s the List of 53 to 58 peaks (depending on who you ask) over 14,000 feet that you can summit across the state.
All of these are varying in difficulty from the Aforementioned Mount Sunflower in Kansas to Denali in Alaska.
As I accidentally started my journey in 2010, And mid-2016 I decided to take up the task and try to do the U.S. High Points, so Follow Along with me on my summits page below. If I do any other big peaks, I’ll update them there as well. Right now, just some U.S. Summits live there.
