HP #29  Sucess!

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

Pleasant and Scenic  Sucess!

With McCannster. Quick drive down from St Louis. No view at the summit but took a nice walk down to Mina Sauk falls (dry but nice views). HP #8

Nice Forests  Sucess!

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.

Cool view, but only from the side, not the very top  Sucess!

Drive up. Got a photo of the sign. Nothing special really.

Ninth Of Eleven This Trip  Sucess!

nothing especially memorable here - it took forever to get here and forever to leave as well

#6  Sucess!

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.

Guru Jakk Longacre

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!

Lucky HP#13  Sucess!

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!

Very foggy  Sucess!

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 #30  Sucess!

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).

HP #21  Sucess!

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.

Post winery....  Sucess!

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

Wet  Sucess!

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).

I like it on top

Taum Sauk Mtn.  Sucess!

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

HP # 5  Sucess!

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!

Hands Across America  Sucess!

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.
