Mnt Whitney

I told many of you about my trip up Mnt Whitney. We planned for a 50-miler but only made it 10 due to sickness and injury. It was a great adventure though.
Above is the spot where we could look back and see where we came from. The meadow you see is Horseshoe Meadow. We started our hike at the farthest point of the meadow you can see.
I am on the left, my friend Danior is in the middle and Steven is on the right.

These are bear cannisters and hold enough food for all three of us for a week. We only used a days worth so we now have food storage in case there is ever an emergency.

This is where we camped overnight. It is a beautiful lake and the furthest we were able to get before we went back home the next day. We were a little disappointed but glad we were not stranded 25 miles into the hike injured and sick. It was a great experience but could have been better if we had made the entire trip.
