This pole has been to the Himalayas, Denali (This is where pole broke - at about 15200 feet, but was easily made workable with duct tape), Mt Rainier, Mt Baker, through most of the AT, The Rockies, The Sierras, The Tetons, The Bear Tooths, The Canyons of Arizona, The Caribean, The origin of the N. fork of the Wailua River in Kauai, and too many other places to mention. I've loved traveling in all of these places.
