Interested in becoming a highpointer?
The quest can be to reach each state’s high points, as Fred Pomeroy is doing, or the goal can be to go to the high point in each county in a given state.
There are websites to help you find the information you need in order to locate the high points:
- www.highpointers.org gives you the vital information about reaching the state high points, along with information about people who have gone before you.
- www.cohp.org is the website for the county high points. A national map allows you to select your state, then there is information about each county, along with a list of people who have reported reaching these high points.
Andy Martin has been to every highpoint in New Mexico. You can reach Martin through a web link to ask questions about the counties he has visited in various states.
There are also books available to give you the latest information and advice.
Highpointer.org also has a store where patches and T-shirts may be obtained.
There is also an annual convention for high-point enthusiasts. This year it will be at Black Mesa, Okla., on Sept. 18-22.
