Default Intermittent Cooling Issues

Hey, Apologies if this is a repeat but I'm relatively new here and this forum isn't the easiest to navigate.

Basically on longer stretches of highway at 65-80mph the temp gauge creeps to a little more than 3/4 of the way up. It has never touched the red and stays right about there. It will drop right back down to operating temperature after I blast the heat for a minute and will stay down for a while before creeping back up. It is also worth noting that this does not happen at all while city driving, or even very spirited driving, only for longer stretches on the highway.

About a year ago I installed an IPD vx cam and did a coolant flush with a new water pump at the same time, This is when the issues began to occur. Very recently I installed a new thermostat which had no effect on the issue.

My thought was maybe in the process of draining the coolant and installing water pump I freed up some 20 y/o crud and there is now a blockage in the radiator somewhere. Just looking for pointers if I'm headed in the right direction or how else to pursue this.

Thanks!
