Response to Boston Globe - article in Travel Section 8.15.04

Highpointers go for the top in every state -- even the flat ones

Eleven-year-old Galen Johnson, son of the famed Alaskan mountaineer, Dave Johnson, in 2001 became the youngest person to have climbed all of the United States' high points. The oldest, 77-year-old Cal Dunwoody, started with the country's highest point, 20,320-foot Mount McKinley in Alaska, and nine years later, in 1999, finished up with the lowest, Florida's 345-foot Britton Hill.

More than a few of the 2,834 members of the Highpointers Club are highly goal-oriented. The rest are a diverse group of climbing nerds, enjoying a seemingly endless road trip with a vertical orientation.
