USA States Highpoints

Mount Whitney

Mount Whitney

This project started as my Western USA States Highpoints project. I first considered climbing the Western USA States Highpoints in the mid 1980s, but was distracted by other climbing projects and bicycling trips for many years. I finally completed my original project in 2014 with a hike up Mauna Kea.

I don't expect to visit all of the USA State Highpoints, but I have listed them here in case I have opportunities to visit them in the future.
