South Beyond 6K - There are 40 peaks in the southern Appalachian mountains with summits above 6,000ft. These are the highest mountains west of the Mississippi river. in total, there are 41 peaks above 6,000ft in the eastern united states. The lone northern wolf is Mount Washington in New Hampshire . The remaining 40 peaks belong to the south in Tennessee and North Carolina.
My latest challenge was to climb all 40 peaks above 6,000ft in the Southern Appalachians in preparation for climbing Mount Rainier. These mountains are known as the Southern Sixers. As of July 10th, 2015, I have climbed all 40 peaks!
