Above is a beautiful summer picture (note the snow line) of Denali, AKA Mount Mckinley, in Alaska. It’s summit, at 20,237 feet above sea level, is the highest point in the State of Alaska (as well as the highest in The United States, and all of North America in it’s case). Because most State Highpoints are Earthcaches (more on that later), Geocachers are much more likely than the general public to have heard of the hobby of Highpointing, in which participants aspire to visit the high points of all 50 United States. You can learn more about Highpointing and join The Highpointers Club by visiting their website or Facebook page.
