Highpoints by Elevation and Date Admitted

Most highpointers will “randomly” climb the state highpoints. Others may like a little order in their quest. For example, climbing the highpoints by elevation (lowest <-> highest) or by date admitted to the union (earliest <-> latest). Such ordered quests are tracked and presented in the Second Quarter issue of the Apex to Zenith newsletter. You might be interested in “Issue #75 Fourth Quarter 2006” and “Issue #72 First Quarter 2006” which have short articles on such efforts.
