Featured Video Play Icon

Cheaha Mountain was almost a bust. You can tell by the fog in the footage. When I arrived it was still fogged in. This was even after I had decided to go to Horseshoe Bend National Military Park first. Having drove four hours from Nashville I kept in good humor and embraced the absurdity of […]

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 […]
