Response to Highest Paved Road Discussion in County Highpointers

Jerry Brekhaus has posted a revised list to cohp.

Date: Thu, 04 Nov 2004 11:23:34 -0700
From: Jerry & Betty Brekhus <>
Subject: Highest Paved Roads

Once again, I am posting the list of highest paved roads. Each posting tends to generate a few more corrections, which are welcome. The list may appear in Apex to Zenith, so here is your chance to help me get it right.

These are all paved roads, to the best of our knowledge. As before, if there are two roads listed for a state, the first, higher one is a cul-de-sac. The rest are through roads.

States with changes since last time include Arkansas, California, and West Virginia. Thanks to Dave Olson, Pete Yamagata and Fred Johnson, and Fred Lobdell for the corrections. It looks like the Freds lead this round, but then again, Dave Olson submitted more than one. :>) --Jerry
