Highpointing!


While traveling around the northern midwest states we have been taking advantage of the opportunity to visit some of the state highpoints. A highpoint climb can involve a climb to the highest point in South Dakota (7242 ft), which involves a 3 to 4 hour hike to reach some beautiful views. While other highpoints, like Iowa, might involve a quick drive to a farm to walk to the end of a barn that has a "Highest Point in Iowa" sign on it.

Together we have been to 38 highpoints, thirteen of them as Traveling Trainers. Remember your Leave No trace skills and ethics if you decide that "highpointing" is something you want to do.
