About Our Header Photo

Our current header was shot during the Maine 2013 convention and specifically was shot during the Friday social overlooking a sunset on Katahdin.

Earlier headers:

The 2012-2013 header photo on our page was taken on June 8, 2012, during the Highpointers Convention and is taken at the Mazamas Lodge in Government Camp, Oregon, where the club was holding its Friday social. Snow storms during the week (dubbed “Juneuary”) were so frequent that almost nobody summited Mount Hood during the convention.

  1. Greeting:
    Having climbed the western states’ highpoints by 1990, I now plan a road trip to visit high points in the eastern 48 states. I hike half my days near my home in Estes Park. Last week I crept eight miles on and off trail in RMNP. Mounts Katahdin and Marcy may be beyond my present strength but I am only 73 and gain experience every day.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth & heaven; that which we are, we are
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
