Highpointing: Mount Mitchell, North Carolina

Featured Video Play Icon

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 […]

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 […]

Highpointing: Mount Arvon, Michigan

Mount Arvon was a challenge. The opening shots by the lake in Baraga 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 to reshoot it, the sun wrecked havoc on it. By that point we were rushing and […]

Highpointing: Charles Mound, Illinois

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. On the surface, there isn’t much to the highest point of Illinois. Charles Mound […]

Welcome back to Rooftops of America!

Featured Video Play Icon

It’s time to launch Season 2. The episodes for this season are going to focus on highpoints that are relatively “easy to access,” though I admit I may be stretching that definition a bit with the season finale. I am also going to start highlighting local sites in Nashville in my season intros and recaps.  […]

GoFundMe!

I’ve decided to launch a GoFundMe campaign to assist in the production of Rooftops of America. This was a big decision for me. One of the things I had to come to terms with was asking for help. Up till this point most of Rooftops has been limited to a small group of people. I’ve had […]

Season One Recap

We made it! It’s hard to believe Season 1 is wrapped up. This has been an adventure, a learning experience, and an all-around excellent way to spend time with great people. Once again thanks to my wife and son for letting me have the time to pursue this ridiculous endeavor. I also want to thank […]
