We continue the tour of the state Highpoints in the sooner state. Though a later, Jacko the frog points out the highlights of the Mesa and its volcanic origins. Good directions and highlights are given.
Thanks for submitting this page! Is there any history of the area?
I guess you are a highpointer like me. I hope you like the contribution I have made to your page. Thanks for putting up the highpoint sites. I am thinking about putting up Mt. Sunflower.
This page is not bad. I do believe the elevation is 4,973 feet, not 4,975. I found a nice, and scenic way, to get to the highpoint from Denver, Colorado. I believe it is on my trip report.
Good page on the highpoint.
Good page. Who knew there were actual mountains (maybe hills is a better word) in Oklahoma.
Thanks for the vote! Of the two choices, Black Mesa would qualify more as a hill. Take a look at some of Oklahoma's Wichita Mountains, which are much more prominent.
Thanks for maintaining such a helpful page!
Thanks for your vote!!
Why only 3?
That was a mistake. The vote has been changed.
Nice page, but you seem to be implying on the page that the summit of Black Mesa is in Oklahoma. This is actually not the case and it is in Colorado. The Colorado side of Black Mesa actually has quite a bit of land above 5,000 feet, with the highest point at 5715 feet. I would suggest adding a bit more info on the Colorado side, and mentioning this.
"south" is misspelled
Thanks! I've fixed it...
Txmountaineer--I've added two images (a map and descriptions page) that provide a great way to get to Black Mesa from NM using the Dry Cimarron Scenic By Way. This relatively unknown, but well-maintained dirt road provides exceptional views, as well as interesting places for hiking while enroute. --mark d.
Thanks for posting this page. It's pretty good, but would be even better with information on route distance and difficulty (or lack thereof), camping or lodging locations, food and supply locations, etc.
Thanks for the comment! The route information is actually attached as a "child" to the Black Mesa page as "North Flank Route".
Ah, thanks for pointing out the route page. I'm still learning my way around here. I'm adding another point to my vote.
