The Highpointers with the Bargo Brothers

The Highpointers with the Bargo Brothers follows two adventurous brothers from Texas as they explore the United States by climbing the highest point in all 50 states. The challenge varies from state to state - from big technical peaks like Mount Rainier in Washington - to small hills on private property like Driskill Mountain in Louisiana. In each state, they invite local experts and some of the most interesting people to join them as they discover the best that each state has to offer, from the cities to the countryside.
