Making More Of Life Crater Lake Medical diagnoses certainly have an effect on one’s future. “When I found out I had lymphoma, it changes you,” James said. “You live differently due to that diagnosis; change your way of thinking.” The doctors told her she has a lazy cancer and her condition is stable according to her last checkup. Even though James’ medical condition is a very slow acting cancer, she and her husband decided to make more of their life. Husband Tim searched for new activities for the couple to explore and stumbled upon highpointing. It has become the couples’ new obsession. High-pointing is an outdoor sport for active people who enjoy hiking and climbing. Armed with a vehicle, maps and other electronic devices, the hiker finds the highest elevation in states and then travels to the location. Some locations are easy to arrive at and some, like Mt. Rainier in Washington State, involve several thousand feet of mountain climbing at high elevations with backpacks, crampon cleats for hiking boots, ice picks and technical equipment to complete the climb. “Yes, Tim drags me along on his hiking adventures,” James said with a laugh. “But we find the most amazing, obscure places we never would have thought to see.” James, a Yankton real estate agent, is quite enamored with the beautiful countryside and out of the way places and laughs as she says she is getting a lot better reading maps. She said they didn’t travel a lot but now it’s like, ‘let’s go,’ and finding locations is easier. The couple uses GPS devices but sometimes the electronics are not reliable.
