US County High Point Links

I started out with this climbing/highpointing thing as a runner when I was injured and needed a break from asphalt and concrete to heal. I soon found out that trails and climbs were much more entertaining and fulfilling than street runs! I thank Bob Bolton and a few others for my conversion. Life is good!
