Highpointing: Black Mountain, Kentucky

Featured Video Play Icon

Of all the highpoints I have visited so far Kentucky is the one with the biggest missed potential and lost opportunity. There is an interesting history behind the mountain and for the region. It could be a showcase in a very cool part of the country. Instead you get a summit dotted with antennas and […]

Season 2 is finished! When this season was originally planned the goals were twofold. The first was to learn from the mistakes of season 1 and correct or make improvements.

Highpointing: Mount Mitchell, North Carolina

This is the last highpoint episode for season 2, only the recap video to go! Mount Mitchell is a favorite highpoint of mine. It is the king of the east; you won’t find a higher peak unless you head west to the Dakotas, south to the Dominican Republic, north to Quebec, or east to the […]

I had convinced Alex and Brian to meet up with me at Washington National Airport right as my flight arrived and go with […]

Highpointing: Mount Arvon, Michigan

The opening shots by the lake did not turn out as I had hoped, we first shot it early in the morning and the footage was dark. When we had returned later in the day to reshoot it, the sun wrecked havoc on it. By that point we were rushing and I just wanted to […]

Highpointing: Charles Mound, Illinois

Featured Video Play Icon

Charles Mound is a good study in finding content. One of the challenges for some of the less “glamorous” highpoints is finding the hook or the story. Make no mistake, they all have a story to tell, sometimes it’s just hidden. Taken on the surface, there isn’t much to the highest point of Illinois. It’s […]
