Highpointing: Driskill Mountain, Louisiana

Featured Video Play Icon

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

Highpointing: Campbell Hill, Ohio

Featured Video Play Icon

Getting to Campbell Hill was a long day trip for me. I left Nashville early in the morning then headed north six hours to reach the highpoint. 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 […]

Highpointing: Black Mountain, Kentucky

Featured Video Play Icon

Of all the highpoints I have visited so far, Black Mountain, 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, and beautiful part of the country. Instead when you reach the […]

Highpointing: Mount Mitchell, North Carolina

Mount Mitchell is the last highpoint episode for season 2, only the recap video to go! This peak 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 […]

Highpointing: Sassafras Mountain, South Carolina

Featured Video Play Icon

Sassafras Mountain is an episode that may have to be re-filmed in a few years. The South Carolina highpoint is going through a transition. If work goes as planned 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 […]

Highpointing: Mount Davis, Pennsylvania

The big secret behind the Mount Davis episode is it was not the one originally scheduled for filming. The original plan was to visit New Jersey, but after taking a realistic look at the time involved to go from DC to High Point State Park and make it back in time for my flight home […]

Highpointing: Ebright Azimuth, Delaware

Featured Video Play Icon

Welcome to our noisiest episode. Ebright Azimuth, as you have probably noticed, is right next to a fairly busy road. Of course we exacerbated this situation by shooting right around rush hour. I had convinced Alex and Brian to meet up with me at Washington National Airport right as my flight arrived. We would then […]
