    On June 16, 2009, I visited Hawkeye Point, and completed my 24-year quest for state highpoints. As I mentioned in the logbook there, I resolved 12 years ago to not push this quest to the ultimate conclusion. In 1997 I spent 2 nights in a 3-man tent with 4 other climbers at 20,320 feet..http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/2899/aconcagua.html . When I returned from this trip, I declared that if I were to spend 2-3 weeks on a climb ever again, it would be in Nepal, NOT Alaska. So my quest is completed. Thanks to my wife and family for their support. This exercise began in September 1985 with my oldest daughter, Vanessa. Together we visited 30 high points in 1985-1987, and I have been picking off the remaining 19 at about 1one per year ever since. [linked image]
