At the same time I can be low or high,
I can be found where the ground meets the sky.

I may have a bald spot on top of my head,
but pick a fight with me, and you may be dead.

Slow moving, slow growing, I eventually change,
but I'll always have friends out on the range.

What am I?

Part 2 of the series.

You are

A mountain

At the same time I can be low or high, I can be found where the ground meets the sky.

Mountains can be seen on the horizon; some of them are low (usually older mountains, which have eroded), some high (usually younger ones)

I may have a bald spot on top of my head, But pick a fight with me and you may be dead.

Snow-capped peaks are something you see on mountains high enough - these resemble a "bald spot" on the top of someone's head. But people who climb mountains—seen as a challenge or fight—could "lose the fight" often die.

Slow moving, slow growing, I eventually change, But I'll always have friends out on the range.

Mountains change very slowly, from parts of the earth moving as well as erosion; mountains are found in "ranges", that is, a bunch of them all together.

  • $\begingroup$ Ding ding ding. We have a winner! Part 3 tomorrow. But you didn't cover the last line. It's a pretty easy one. ;) $\endgroup$ – Z. Dailey Mar 3 '16 at 18:31
  • $\begingroup$ @Z.Dailey The "range" bit? If so, I just added a little. Let me know if that's enough or if you need more. $\endgroup$ – question_asker Mar 3 '16 at 18:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yah. You got it. And quick too. Didn't want a complaint for being too vague. But this is what happens when I make it a little easier. Next one will be hard again. $\endgroup$ – Z. Dailey Mar 3 '16 at 18:35

You could be

the sun.

At the same time I can be low or high, I can be found where the ground meets the sky.

During the day, the sun will be at different places.

I may have a bald spot on top of my head, But pick a fight with me and you may be dead.

Do fly to close to the sun. I have trouble getting the bald spot to fit.

Slow moving, slow growing, I eventually change, But I'll always have friends out on the range.

The sun will eventually turn into another stellar body when the hydrogen runs out (is transformed). There are several sun-like bodies in the universe, for instance Alpha Centauri.
