peaker559Nice Summit Area  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011


It's a very interesting summit area, with all of the signs and articles on other highpoints and the history of the area!

tiogaLong Drive  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2011


We were visiting my wife's family in the Des Moines area and we made the drive up to highpoint, about a 4.5 hour drive from Des Moines. Ate lunch in Spirit Lake after visiting the top and then were back to the family home by 4:30. They do a good job of caring for their highpoint, compared to most of the others.

Cascade ScramblerPretty easy to find  Sucess!

Cascade Scrambler

Even with 59 and 60 south out of Worthington being closed, this was still easy to find. There was a very, very stiff "breeze" while we were there. I'm not entirely sure that there isn't a spot closer to the silo that may be a few inches higher, so I just walked the whole area to be sure.

I like it on top

Met up with a great friend for a fun little weekend trip. The area is a nice little spot with some very nice improvements.

Vagabond Manifesto

...And I'd reached the top of ID, AZ, and NM before getting the one that's two hours from where I grew up.

Post-expedition beers in nearby Worthington, Minnesota, to wind down from the harrowing trek.

BadgerSummitSeekerHP # 6  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2005


Would have been a little embarrasing to not be succesful on this attempt!! Did HP # 6 on our way out to relatives that live in the Black Hills. Sounds like they've really improved the summit area since I was there.

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2009


Sarah and I drove over from Illinois through a storm via I-90 on the way to a family reunion in Nebraska. The weather cleared by the time we got there. They did a great job fixing up the state highpoint. It looks very nice. This is my 28th state HP.

osatrikSHP #49 AND LAST!!!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2009


I started bagging state highpoints in 1985, before Jack Longacre started the Highpointers Club! Summited this one while on my 8000-mile Great American Road Trip, in which I bagged the last 5 of my 49 state high points. I decided 12 years ago, after spending 2 nights at 20,320 feet on Aconcagua with four buddies in a 3-man tent, that I'd much rather go to Nepal if I can go on another 2-3 week climb somewhere. So Iowa is it, #49 and FINAL! Loved the quest. Now to other goals. The highpoint is quite a bit different than the photos posted on the Summitpost page, so I'll put up some of the new facilities as soon as I figure out how to get them from from camera into the computer! I thought it was going to be ironic that Iowa was my last SHP, but as I discovered, this was a terrific place to end the quest, as it is the one and only SHP that pays homage to all the others with its signposts.
