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. I'm now up to 47 states! Last year (2019) I attempted Gannett peak, and three years ago I climbed Mt Rainier in support of Big City Mountaineers. I think it is a great organization, consider supporting it, to expose more youth to the joy of the outdoors, the best kind of environmentalism I can think of. Most recent highpoint: Granite Peak in Montana.
I live near 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. This seems to confirm a quote I have heard about St Louis. It is "halfway to everywhere else".
Mt Rainier, Washington on July 27, 2014

Forty-seven states (94%) Completed

There is also Kirkwalk to consider.
