If you guys need help...

I'd be happy to help. I am busy finishing the Shenandoah Mountains, but I have hiked 30 highpoints, and maintain 12 highpoint pages if you need guidance on this.

Re: If you guys need help...

Hi- Sure , I'd like help. I have the western block high points (including Alaska / no Hawaii) and Puma has some of the eastern high points. What level of involvement would you like (I'm open to anything)? I gave you Admin access so you can add or change the format of what's there- feel free to do what you like. I feel this list should be a joint venture by those who've done a good amount of the high points and/ or have pages on them.

Okay, but give me time

Alright, my week is really busy - like REALLY busy. But I can work on the Southern highpoints on Friday evening and Saturday. I mean, I got an article published in Apex to Zenith on the highpoints of the South, so I can probably just use that. So, why don't I write something up and e-mail you guys. Sound good? Why don't you e-mail me instead of doing summitpost messages, because new messages don't show up in this format.

It will be great

Just wanted to say that I'm sure you guys will do a terrific job. I like all your pages on the High Points, and find them useful. This year I hope to do a lot more myself, and if you need any photos or stuff from me, I'd be happy to contribute.

We appear done!

I made a minor language correction to the text under Mount Hood, and added the rest of the links to the Western States. Looks AWESOME. I suggest we each take one last look to see if there are any mistakes, and then we share this page with the Highpointers Club!

I will certainly spend time reviewing this new site about highpoints, and I'll provide some coverage in the upcomin nl. Thanks to the three for spending time with this!

Great

This really demonstrates the strength of the capability of letting multiple users maintain one page--between the three of you this page is absolutely wonderful. Well done, all of you!

Bear Mountain, CT, Should Not Be on List

This will undoubtedly become the definitive source for info because it's so great so I'm going to be nitpicky.

I was getting ready to switch http://highpointers.org primary links to this list which is much better updated because of its collaborative nature than any other site out there. However, I notice an anomaly in that Bear Mountain is also recognized as a highpoint (and why the list shows 51 entries -- I was expeting #51 to be DC).

We've been down this debate before. Bear Mountain should come off the list. The slippery slope of highpoints on features with higher elevations in other states would also include Black Mesa where the highpoint of the mesa itself is actually in New Mexico and Backbone Mountain where the highpoint of the feature is actually in West Virginia and of course Boundary Peak where the summit of the massive is actually in California

The Highpointers Club couldn't care less if you climb Bear Mountain -- even it's probably a nicer hike than Frissell. I've even sent 50 completers back to Frissell because they didn't go the 100 yards or so beyond the summit in Massachusetts to the actual Nutmeg highpoint on the slope (which one completer dubbed "Roger's Peg").

This game is no fun unless you can nitpick especially when the site is so spectacular!

List of U.S. Territories

I see that Mount Lam Lam on Guam is also listed. U.S. territories should probably be kept as a separate list from the state highpoints. A correct state highpoint list should only contain 50 listings.

Here's the official list of territories:

American Samoa
District of Columbia
Guam
Marhsall Territories
Northern Marianas
Palau
Puerto Rico
U.S. Minor Islands
Virgin Islands

The territory list comes from the USGS:
http://geonames.usgs.gov/stategaz/index.html

Again I'm only being nitpicky because the summitpost material is so good and this no doubt will become the official source for all this info.

U.S. territories

Roger,

I don't have the authority to remove those pages from the list. I agree with you, and I would rather they weren't on the list, and we will alert Josh about that. Thanks for your interest in the page. We will get on it.
