McCannster2nd State High Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2007


Drove up during my stay in Boulder, CO. I had never really been in the true Great Plains, so this visit was pretty interesting to me. Mostly cloudy conditions, temperature was about 45 F at 4 PM when I reached the top. A snow mound blocked the entrance to the dirt road, so I ran to the top in 10 minutes. Did a backflip off the register thing, prossibly the highest backflip ever done in the state of NE, unless someone else has done a backflip at that spot. The scenery out there made me think of the movie "Fargo". ;) Fun trip

First state highpoint, decided to make a special trip from mid-state to bag my home state's first. Unfortunately, I was not a purist and drove to the "summit."

Clear day, watched the sun set over Rockies foothills in distant West - just barely visible. Saw a few bison below. Signed register and lingered. It's a beautiful, rugged, underappreciated landscape.

Drive and 'hike' were the easy parts. Tornado warnings everywhere, ugly sky... scary!

After completing the professional geologists exam in Cheyenne, I took the short drive over to Panorama Point, my 10th State Highpoint.

Drove across Wyoming after climbing Kings Peak in Utah. A tornado touched down a few miles in front of us as we drove. Drove to the top just before dark with son Ryan. Signed the register and left in search of a motel and a good meal. Stayed in Pine Bluffs, WY and then headed for Mount Elbert, CO. HP #19.

1 am summit was awesome. Way cooler at night to drive the dirt roads with no clue where youre going and be on the bison fields with no clue where the bison are

Made a side trip while driving up to the Wind River Range from Denver to climb Gannett Peak. This is my 15th state highpoint, and the flatest one that I've visited so far.

Highpoint #19, as sort of a consolation prize. Woke up in Leadville, CO, looked out the hotel room window at where Mt. Elbert was the night before and saw snow - no mountain! Figured I'd rather come back someday for the views from Mt. Elbert. Didn't see a single bison here, unfortunately.

I drove to the summit, following the excellent directions from this website. The farm roads are all in excellent shape- wide and not too bumpy, but you can not drive too fast. I got a certifiacte from the Chamber of Commerce in Kimball certifying that I visited the highest point in Nebraska. Kim, in the office, is a very nice and welcoming lady. I love the people of Nebraska.

No one around for miles! Very peaceful and very green. Windy with the threat of a storm. Earlier rain made the road too muddy to drive so a quick jog to the marker and back helped me stretch my legs after driving down from climbing Harney Peak in South Dakota. Lovely!

I thought this highpoint was awesome. It was a very beautiful still evening when we visited. Amazingly quiet. It felt like we were the only people around for miles. Wouldn't want to be out there in a storm though.

Reached my fourth state highpoint around 11pm on a cold night after driving from Lawrence KS and "summitting" Mt Sunflower earlier in the day.

Have lived just 45 minutes from this high point for 6 months and just finally stopped by. There was a herd of antelope running off as I reached the top, in addition the the ever preasent buffalo. Glad I made it here and only 46 more to go!

This one gets dogged at times, but I liked it. The view was good (especially the distant Rocky Mountains to the SW). The buffalo were interesting. Finally, there's something humbling about these Plains Highpoints. They seem so remote, that I get a real sense of gloom and reverence from them. Must be the wind.
