Humphreys Peak on there!

Also, exciting to see a sign on SP, as I was
getting tired of looking at flowers, butterflies and Trango Towers.

that Guadalupe Peak is listed as being closer to Iowa than Wheeler Peak even though it is 400 miles straight south of Wheeler Peak?

I missed that sign. I wonder if the distances are calculated by driving miles, and the roads to Guadalupe are more direct than Wheeler. (Yeah, that's it... :-)

I did a Mapquest on both Guadalupe vs. Wheeler and Gannett vs. Granite. The signs appear inaccurate to me. I'll have to email Dave Covill when he gets back from the Highpointers Konvention and ask him.

Don't be too hard on them. I'm not sure the good people of Iowa have ever actually seen a mountain. It's not surprising that they don't know where the other HPs are.
