Highpointing

Highpointing is the act of standing on the highest point of every state.  See Highpointers Club for information about each of the 50 peaks.

This list has a unique rule -- one is allowed to ascend and descend by any method.  Hiking, biking, driving, being carried...it all counts.  This is a novelty for us; for every other other list we've pursued, hiking on one's own two feet has been an absolute requirement.

Here's a list of the highpoints.  We've linked the peaks we've already done to the appropriate trip reports.
