Desolate location but blissful solitude.  Sucess!

Drove over after a day and night in RMNP. My GPS kept leading me to try to get there from the Colorado side but reality kept intervening. Finally got there to find it completely empty and remote, but what were you expecting? You get a drawer and monument, and you like it. Was pleased to bag #33, and almost done with the drive ups.

a storm rolled in  Sucess!

got here as a storm was rolling in. a thunderstorm on the prairie, while beautiful, is not really something you want to be stuck in. made it back to the main road just as it started to rain.

Just a checkmark  Sucess!

Nabbed this along with the State Line Highpoint....an eastern plains mini-tour, of sorts.

#15  Sucess!

Second high point of the trip. Kansas yesterday. Herd of buffalo down the the hill. Also went to the tri point marker and a field of sunflowers.

A beautiful lonely spot on High Plains  Sucess!

Gave us something to aim for on drive between Badlands and Denver. Out of envelopes when we arrived.

Larvitour Stop #34  Sucess!

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.

Highpoint #9  Sucess!

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

HP and Tri-state marker  Sucess!

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.

Nowhere Land  Sucess!

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.

High Point #25  Sucess!

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!

No T-shirt :(  Sucess!

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

Clear Day in Nebraska  Sucess!

Clear day in Nebraska for the summit. Herd of bison nearby made the flat summit much more intriguing. Worth stopping by and checking out.

Highpoint #22  Sucess!

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.

First High Point  Sucess!

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.

HP 14  Sucess!

If I recall, very tough to find, in the middle of corn fields.
