Highpointing: Hawkeye Point, Iowa

Featured Video Play Icon

Iowa is a land of farms, notably corn and soybeans. It is an agricultural powerhouse and its highpoint reflects that legacy. Hawkeye Point is on the remains of a family farm, the Sterler’s farm to be precise. The summit is only a few yards away from a silo and depending on the time of year […]

Highpointing: Eagle Mountain, Minnesota

Featured Video Play Icon

The highpoint of the Land of 10,000 Lakes can be quite literally found in a land of lakes. The Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness is more known for its extensive paddling opportunities than its hikes. This is the second time I have reached the summit of this highpoint and it was a bit more enjoyable […]

10 State Highpoints for People Who Are Scared of Heights

Featured Video Play Icon

I like to say that highpointing is for everyone, but this list was inspired by my friend Brooke who asked, “What about people who don’t like high places?” That’s a good question! US state highpoints aren’t all purple mountain majesties, in fact quite a few are low elevation wonders! So I compiled a list of […]

Highpointing: Black Mesa, Oklahoma

Black Mesa, the highpoint of Oklahoma, is located in the driest, coldest, and harshest place in the state, though just not when we stopped by. No, when we visited the rain never let up until the final scene and it was greener than I had ever expected. So far in this highpointing journey these are […]

Highpointing: Mount Sunflower, Kansas

Featured Video Play Icon

Mount Sunflower sits out in the high plains of Kansas just a few yards away from the Colorado border. It is austere but picturesque in it’s way. Production-wise this was the first highpoint episode shot for season 3. Back when I was originally planning the series I had this idea of doing all the Great […]

Highpointing: Panorama Point, Nebraska

Welcome to the Nebraska episode with special guest, “High Winds.” They show up early in the episode and stay pretty much the whole time. The weather report said to expect winds of 10-15mph, which is pretty standard for that area. Instead we got 30-35 mph winds with gusts up to 45 mph. I knew the […]

Highpointing: Driskill Mountain, Louisiana

Featured Video Play Icon

For a 1000-mile day trip and a self-directed episode, this one turned out pretty good. If you want a point of comparison check out Magazine Mountain that I had filmed in May 2016, that one makes me cringe. The weather was hot, but not too onerous, the bugs weren’t a problem, and surprisingly for a […]
