US County High Point Links
Micah Stiegler has self-identified as interested in climbing to the high points of counties in the United States.
I've been climbing since I was a child; got AMS for the first time when I was 5 hiking in the Rockies. Since then I've been around the world exploring & experiencing the many cultures the earth has to offer as well as (of course) the many varying climbs & the challenges each one poses.
And while conquering a summit is an extreme thrill, I still believe that you should focus on the journey, not just the destination. It's a package deal.
My favorite climbs are the ones I start with a single step. And every climb is different.
I like the virgins that make me earn it for one reason or another. But I also like the veterans that still give me a new experience every time I climb them. Variety is the spice of life. Carpe Diem.
Some of the most challenging, yet rewarding climbs of my life have not been very glorious in terms of elevation gained, recognition from peers, distance traveled, bragging rights, extreme weather endured, etc, etc... I could care less.
Each ascent and each descent means something to me. Even a small boulder can pose it's own challenges. And it's all worth it in the end.
Each climb is a unique adventure. And that's all that matters.
Keep traveling, keep exploring, keep living. Make good friends, make good experiences, make good memories.
