Words to describe those 10 hours - breath-taking, amazing, inspiring, awestruck, adrenaline-filled, cold, tired, hot, energized and many many more!
Pictures of the mountain the day before we climbed (short dry run to get a feel for the snow-covered mammoth of a mountain). It doesn't look that bad, does it? Let's just say looks are deceiving!
Pictures from day of the climb:
|Mt. Jefferson in the distance|
|first flat rest area- Devil's kitchen|
|getting close - and yes, it's THAT STEEP!|
|Happy now that we're off the steep part and warming up!|
Now we are resting and packing for our flight back to PA. We fly June 5th and will return to Portland, OR July 5th. See you soon, everyone back home!
Til next time...Happy Trails!
