Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion – Charles Mound, Illinois

Show your pride as a Scout with this Charles Mound Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion. This quality medallion adheres directly to your hiking stick, commemorating your climb to the highest natural point in Illinois. The perfect symbol of your determination, this medallion is not only great to show off, but it will also serve as a reminder of all you can achieve when try hard and do your best.

Charles Mound is the highest natural point in Illinois and only a quarter mile from the Wisconsin border. It lies within the Driftless Area, a region of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin that was not covered or ground down by the last continental glaciers. Elijah Charles, one of the first lasting settlers in the area arrived in 1828, settled at the base of the mound, and the hill assumed his name from there.

Minted with an antique bronze finish, and imbued with brown enamel, this medallion depicts a three pronged sign, a fleur-de-lis, and the mount’s elevation of 1,235 feet. The Charles Mound Summiteer Hiking Stick Medallion is a durable and unique reminder of this important achievement on your Scouting® journey.
