    Added the question mark to make it a bit more challenging. This is east of the Mississippi, and it is fairly significant, though it may seem ordinary. I'll give some more clues if this is too obscure.

    That's pretty obscure, all right.


    Edit: ... but I think I figured it out. I'll let somebody else guess, though.

    Some cool trivia I learned about that place today, while trying to figure out the map: the first person to successfully summit all of the state highpoints completed his quest with a visit to Hoosier Hill in 1936. (Of course, there were only 48 highpoints back then ... )

    That's a good way to end such a task. Zero effort required! It probably wasn't nearly as well-marked back then.
    It's fairly close to where I lived as a kid, and I'll be within 30 minutes of it over the next few days. I need to go see it!

    Absolutely insane. First, I can't imagine hauling a kayak that far. And second, the water they ran was nuts. Looks beautiful, but I am ok knowing I'll never run that creek.

    I'll look forward to that trip report. :)

    Reading about that guy, I wondered if he lived long enough to see Alaska and Hawaii admitted as states, and if he frantically planned a McKinley climb when he heard the news ...

    Actually, that's incorrect! :)

    I guess that's a hint as well?

    Oh sorry about that! Didn't realize I was up. In an effort to speed things up, this one will last about thirty seconds :)
    What's the name of the lake of the lake in the upper left?

    Have you ever hiked the ridgeline itself between Chipeta and, says Gilbert? That whole thing seems very doable and quite interesting.

    edit - also, you're up!
