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 […]

Highpointing: Campbell Hill, Ohio

This was a long day trip for me, driving up from Nashville. Fortunately the drive to and from was uneventful, the weather cooperated with a beautiful day and it was a relatively easy and straightforward shoot. Only two locations were used, with the second only being about a little over a mile away. The highpoint […]

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 Recap

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. The second was to bring the series more in line with what I originally envisioned it to be in my mind’s eye. Technically we improved […]

Highpointing: Mount Mitchell, North Carolina

Featured Video Play Icon

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 […]

Highpointing: Sassafras Mountain, South Carolina

Featured Video Play Icon

This episode is one that may have to be reshot in a few years. Sassafras Mountain is a highpoint in transition. In a few years this peak will once again look drastically different than it looks now. The pleasant surprise of this episode was discovering Hagood Mill only a few miles away from the highpoint. Once […]
