US County High Point Links
William Musser has self-identified as interested in climbing to the high points of counties in the United States.
"Peakbagging" can be distinguished from "highpointing" in that the targets are peaks of mountains with lists requiring targets to pass some threshold of prominence. There is only one HP to stand; not multiple candidate locations. In highpointing, the goal is to reach the highest point in some geographic area (e.g., county, state, or country). Many CHPs have multiple candidate spots. I usually avoid those in order to seek an actual hike or journey. These two activities overlap as exemplified in state highpointing where the list contains both technical peakbagging activities such as Rainier and Denali as well as standing in the middle of a farmer's property in Indiana or Illinois as equivalent achievements!
Peakbagging, remains my passion, thus my use of this website. I am secondarily interested in State Highpointing which has an inexplicable way of dragging peakbaggers into the world of County HPing. There are sites dedicated to CHPing establishing set standards to benchmark achievements. I respect those dedicated to that endeavor, but usually only target CHPs with a "peakbagging" feel.
Yearning for mountains but residing in FL makes something worthy of nearly any peak, so I rate "climbs" high. My family enjoys hiking too, and I am blessed that all have humored me and accompanied me with countless hours peakbagging which I am most grateful.
This site is unique in that it wisely allows you to make up your own rules; develop your own personal goals and lists; and bag peaks in whatever manner suits you to enjoy the outdoors. Set your goals to motivate YOU to achieve them. Run, walk, bike, crawl if you have to... just bag a peak your way and don't let anyone ever tell you that YOUR way is wrong, and then get addicted to a healthy and fulfilling outdoor hobby!
Thanks to all that has made this site possible.
