High Pointing

Back to Hiking

I am a high pointer. My goal is to get to the highest point of every state. I love to hike, either alone or with company. I enjoy pushing myself to the limit. Some day I will be too old to keep doing these adventures and want memories to look back on.

Asta the Small Dog was a very important to me, he was my soul dog. In life he had 29 high points. With great love I share with you Asta's High Point photo album

United States High Points

The map below shows the high points that I have completed. I did not get a solo permit for Mount Rainier, I have only been as high as Muir Camp, so far.
