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.

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.

HP #3 of 5 planned during a tour of the southern states with my son Lance. Windy, but pleasant temps (about 80 degrees - warm for early April).

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.

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

Chuck and I came and went. Slept two nights in a tent.
Nice high point...the falls was very cool (and flowing hard from all the rain).

Met with a great friend and had a fun weekend of hiking. Very cloudy and wet initially. Mina Sauk Falls were awesome.

HP # 5. Started at the top hiked down to Mina Sauk Falls and then back up to the TH. Even though the HP is nothing to brag about it's a REALLY pretty trail and will get the heart rate up when you hike up from the waterfall. I love the Ozarks!

Date Climbed: Mar 2, 1986


This was the 8th state highpoint visited in 6 months by my daughter Vanessa and me at the beginning of our quest. We went here with our family on Hands Across America day, in which we participated near Ste. Genevieve, MO. I recently completed my 49 state high points, and resolve to forego spending three weeks Alaska in favor of going to the Himalayas.

OK, this sort of drives home how silly high pointing is. Granite and McKinley are one thing but Taum Sauk??? sorry dudes. You just drive up and stroll a short distance to a marker in the woods, can't even see anything, you can climb up on the rock there, like a couple feet higher, and be on the top of Missouri....sheesh!

Short hike to the MO highpoint in a pretty state park. We did the 3 mile loop hike to Mina Sauk Falls. Drove on to Piedmont and had breakfast at the Zephyr Cafe. State HP #36.

The off road drive during the last mile through the snow and ice was the hardest part of my AR-MS-LS High Point Trip. Wish I could have made a day of it but only had time to walk to the high point in the dark and move on.

This is one of the four highpoints I snagged on a road trip from Atlanta. A pleasant place, indeed!

Drove all the way from Kansas City to reach my 22nd high point. My wife and dog got their first. Nice area, but probably nicer when there are leaves on the trees.

My wife lived in St Louis at the time and she had never been to Missouri's highpoint and neither had I. Even though there isn't much to walking to the summit, it is a beautiful place and there is always excitement about reaching the high point of a state. We saw pileated woodpeckers while on the summit.
