US County High Point Links

Joseph Hirniak has self-identified as interested in climbing to the high points of counties in the United States.



Evolved into summit-centric hiker after spending a chunk of my youth within a hour's drive of the Alps. "So many hills, so little time" has morphed me into somewhat of a purist AND by default a day-hiker: with a few exceptions I don't like to log peaks unless I've hiked at least 1,000 vertical feet or 4+ miles. I enjoy pursuing wilderness and county high points, although I'm not pursuing any lists in general. Liners aren't my thing, CoHP or not, although exceptions are always made. My life goal is to hike at least 365 peaks with the above parameters so I can say I spent a year of my life pursuing this endeavor.
