Arizona County High Points quest

One of my latest quests is to visit the high point of every county in Arizona. There are fifteen, some of which are rather easy to complete and others that are much more difficult. This quest doesn’t have a due date, but I’m hoping to be close to completion by the end of the summer in 2017.

I’ve currently completed 6 of the 15.
