US County High Point Links

Walter Blume has self-identified as interested in climbing to the high points of counties in the United States.



Decided in 2007 to start highpointing the 49 states (I'm not going to attempt Denali) for fun. We'll see how it goes. Last year I climbed Mt Rainier in support of Big City Mountaineers. It's a great organization, please consider supporting it!
I live in St Louis, MO, which seems to be geographically about as far as possible from all highpoints, they are all at the opposite corners of states. I believe someone said that St Louis is "halfway to everywhere else".
