Wanted: Highpointing friend for husband

Remember when I was out in San Diego and I had that unbelievable experience watching a bunch of birders searching for, like, an orange winged double breasted flycatcher or something?

Fine. Entirely.

But the truth is, my husband and his hobbies make for good writing projects no matter how I approach the subject. I had so much fun writing this story on highpointing (reaching the highest naturally point of elevation in every state) for findingDulcinea. And now I present it to you, readers.

Have fun. Get high...literally (I'm on my second cup of coffee and I'm on FIRE, watch OUT.)
