larvitarLarvitour Stop #34  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2016


A lovely high point with a very un-lovely approach (for a low-clearance vehicle, at least). All the way through the bison-field I could hear plants and rocks scraping against my car's underside. Nothing broke, but it was unnerving all the same, since if anything _had_ I'd have been stranded in the middle of nowhere. I read in a Highpointers Club magazine at the summit that they're gathering funds to improve the road, so things should get better... but until they do, bring your Jeep for this one.

Summited with my boyfriend on our way out west. We saw a herd of Bison grazing in the distance.

Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2016


It was only an hour side trip from Pawnee Sportsmans Center so I finally got to see this little out of the way corner of the US. Then I visited the tri-state marker.

Date Climbed: May 20, 2016


Still has a view from the top. If you happen to see a few different spots with chain link fence surrounding a 1/2 acre of land with a wind sock and a sign that says no tresspassing, I believe those are underground missile silos. You can't miss them because they are the only things you see other than farm land for 10's of miles.

Summitted with Kate. Met a very nice couple from Quebec, Alain and Francine! I don't know if it was the altitude, but even the Coors Light that our new friends shared with us tasted great!

Stopped by on the way back from climbing Devil's Tower. Should have got that T-shirt commemorating the highpoint back in town.

MusiscaClear Day in Nebraska  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 9, 2015
Clear day in Nebraska for the summit. Herd of bison nearby made the flat summit much more intriguing. Worth stopping by and checking out.

punchlineHighpoint #22  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2014


On the way to Thanksgiving in MN. Ended up trying to use the GPS which fell about 1/4 mile short and would have sent us through someone's front yard. Unfortunately it was dark so couldn't find any landmark; kept going towards where we thought the road should be and found it. Snow flurries, took a photo at the marker, saw nothing, donated our $3 and left.

BajumbugFirst High Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 14, 2012


Driving from Pocatello to Omaha, I saw this was fairly close to the freeway and decided to enjoy the novelty of going to a State High Point. Though I had thought a little about it through my life, I never seriously thought I'd be able to go to more than a couple. Little did I know what was in store for me that year--my job has me travel a lot, and I wound up visiting 13 summits in 2012. I had been bitten by the bug, and was able to do 13 more in 2013. I'm running out of the easy ones, though, may need to get serious. Very easy to find after reading the directions on Summitpost.

Fun visit. Drove up from Briggsdale, CO after camping at Pawnee National Grassland Crow Valley. Easy route but watch the last turn on to the private road as it is not signed coming from the south. Also enjoyed the nearby tri-point. Added better directions in the additions section. #40 for me, #27 for Lillian, #11 for John, #10 for Barb.

This was the first of several planes/midwestern high points I visited on a road trip. Thank you for the excellent road directions!
