2016 - February 16 - March 2 » The South and the East (21 States)

This trip was focused on my quest to tag the high point of all 50 states. I ended up reaching more than I had hoped on this trip - 19 in all (which brings me up to 36/50), putting some 5567 miles on my rental car, plus some bonuses. Although quite a few of the below peaks are drive-ups, I ended up having to walk and or/snowshoe some of the roads due to winter closures:
