Name that High Point

Can you name the highest point of the county where you live? Chances are pretty high that you’ll be wrong. As Gary Fallesen researched the summits he repeatedly came across “experts” who steered him wrong. Local belief often differs from factual reality. In this book you’ll learn not only where the real Peak Experiences are, but how to get there. Fallesen delved into the history of each high point as well. With his guidance you’ll meet the people populating the high points today and the peaks in history.

About the Author
Gary Fallesen lives on the shore of Lake Ontario in suburban Rochester, N.Y., at an elevation of 250 feet, which means when he climbs mountains such as 19,340-foot Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa or 22,841-foot Aconcagua in Argentina, South America, he is starting from nearly ground zero. A life-long outdoor enthusiast, he took up climbing on Mount Rainier in Washington in 1996, the same year he became the Outdoor writer at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper. Fallesen began with the D&C in 1979 while a junior at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, N.Y. He has won numerous local, state and national awards over two decades as a columnist and outdoor writer. His writing has also appeared in various national publications.      Send a message to the author
