Highpoint #6 - did this on new years day of 2011 after spending the night in Branson, MO. Accidentally went to the Resivoir...had to back track a little on the drive to get to the real high point. it was cold; barely above freezing.

Slept the night previous at the campground at the trailhead, it was warm and muggy. The view across the nearby wooded hills was pleasant.

Pretty simple stroll. I noted that gasoline was less than a dollar per gallon on this trip.

HP #12. With Alika. Pretty short drive from St Louis area. Just a bit past the peak of the fall colors, but still nice surroundings. No summit views, but strolled down to Mina Sauk Falls, where there are really nice views.

On an eastern journey, I decided to hit all the highpoints of the states I'd be in - 16 possible states, and Taum Sauk was number 2 on the trip.

Date Climbed: Nov 11, 1999
Spent the pm with Guru Jakk Longacre (founder of the 50 state highpoint club who lived there in his trailer). Took him to breakfast the next morning to the "Town & Country" diner where he signed a mug for me! He died a few months later. This was my 49th HP! Did #50 (Gannenett Peak, WY in 2002). WY was also Jakk's #50 HP! He had a great autographed climbing library!

Lovely little walk with my best friend and her fiancée. Ran into another highpointer on the trail and talked for a minute...glad he proved to
my friends that I am not the only insane follower of this hobby on the planet!

Date Climbed: Dec 19, 2009


I got the idea to hit a few state highpoints on my annual Xmas drive from CO to IN. Got there late in the day, near the solstice, very foggy. I wasn't able to do the 3 mile loop, but I look forward to doing it another time.

Last high point on a four state trip. I was running behind on getting home, so I decided to take the paved trail in Taum Sauk St. Pk. to the high point.

Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2009


In order to be in top condition for this high point, we stopped off at the Crown Valley winery a few miles prior---grest fun tasting. Then onto Taum Sauk....added on the loop to Mina Sauk Falls....nice late afternoon activity and the weather was incredible---clear and crisp! State #5
