I am going to be in the Taos, NM area May 29th through June 2nd and have semi-concrete plans to hike Wheeler Peak on June 2nd (I say "semi-concrete" in case the weather necessitates a change to an earlier date like May 30th). I am looking for a hiking partner to do it with if there is anyone interested. If so, send me a PM.

Hello all Highpointers. I have done 21 so far. Planning to do Mt Humphrey, AZ on May 31, 2014. Anybody want to join? Any locals know what the conditions might be regarding snow at that time? I live on the East Coast. Many thanks!

Reading through the comments at the bottom of the story is quite amusing, and borderline disturbing. A lot of people are quite ignorant of state highpoints, even apparently their own state's highest point.

Mike, I think your bigger concern right now are the forest fires. I understand they're in the Flagstaff area so don't be surprised if they're affecting the Humphreys area

I had lots of fun summiting Mount Hood yesterday with my friends Casey and Lance. That's #46 for me.

Thanks! Yeah, it was definitely a great climb. It's one of my favorites so far, right up there with the MR on Whitney.

Hello,

I am a high pointer and former lurker of this fantastic forum and have completed 11 so far, among me some of the more difficult ones. Here is my progress list with links to trip reports, GPS Tracks and Photo galleries: http://www.robertdangerbyrd.com/us-state-highpoint-list.

I currently find myself stuck in Talkeetna for the 5th day trying to get onto the mountain to attempt an Denali summit. We have had consistent bad weather days and planes are not flying in or out. I guess it's better to be stuck here than on the mountain, but it's frustrating nonetheless.

I'm blogging about the trip at http://www.robertdangerbyrd.com/blog and will continue to do so once on the mountain via satellite.

My summer 2014 plans are Kings Peak, Utah on July18, and Mt. Elbert, Colorado on August 30. They will be HPs #10 and #11 for me. It's going to be fun!

Hotoven and I plan to be on Kings Peak on the 4th of July. I will do my best to post some beta here upon our return. BTW, does anyone know how or why we all became "magnificent gentlemen"? Not that it's a bad thing....

Cool! I'll look forward to hearing your trip report. BTW, I bought the Peak Bagger Training Plan from Mountian Athlete to prepare for these hikes. It's pretty tough so far and probably overkill, but without a doubt, I will be ready for it. If you're looking for any kind of training plan, I recommend it.
