Chip Clark - An Autobiography

General Considerations


Additional Comments

        I started county highpointing in 2003 but have been a State Highpointer since 1991,
so I got a head start (33 state HPs to date). My wife Jeanne and daughters Amanda and Gabi enjoy the outdoors,
and have been to the top of a number of counties with me.

Outdoors / Highpointing / Mountaineering


  • Best Hike - Hiking out from campsite to enjoy sunrise at Glacier Point in Yosemite NP.

  • Worst Hike - I haven't had many of those. Probably the worst was getting lost in Lincoln County, TN being way underprepared for the hike. (OBTW- electric fences are more painful in the dark when you're soaking wet.)

  • Hiking Interests - Since completing to Maryland and moving to Pennsylvania, now I am focusing more on PA cohps. I'm trying to also do them with company when possible.

  • General Geographic Interests - Pennsylvania and Chesapeake Bay Watershed

  • Highest Elevation reached on land - 14,433 feet as Mt Elbert, Colorado (twice)
