theREALCarpeDMHawkeye Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 18, 2011


On the annual drive to Indy, I stopped by Hawkeye Pt. The detour noted in the directions from this site was still in place, but it was easy to follow the directions and find the place. This was even easier than the IN, OH, KS, and NE highpoints, and it's distinction as the state highpoint seems a bit dubious when you look around. But it's a nicely kept place and has some interesting things there.

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 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.

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

I believe I was here in about 1992 I may still have the key chain to prove it!

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.

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.

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.
