Denny's Highpoints

Denny is trying to reach the highest point in all 50 states.  This endeavor started during his previous marriage, when both of us spoke of our fascination with maps. Since a common feature of many atlases is a listing of the highpoint in each state, this led us to the Highpointers Club online at http://www.highpointers.org.  Imagine, there were others like us! Together we managed to attain the highest point in 25 states. Denny hopes to continue this quest shortly. 

For detailed information about reaching the state highpoints, I recommend these guidebooks:
Highpoints of the U.S.. by Don W. Holmes
Highpoint Adventures by Charlie and Diane Winger
Fifty State Summits by Paul Zumwalt

To The Top by Joe Glickman & Nels Akerlund is a great pictorial coffee table book
showing all 50 summits.

Below is the completion map.  You can click on a state for a trip report and pictures.  

Start with TN to read about all of Denny's highpoint adventures from the beginning.
