Thank you Rachel, Kari, Andrew and Ryan for a wonderful adventure!!! I'm so grateful for this time in nature with amazing people, away from Wifi and buzzing phones. This trip couldn't have come at a better time and I'm so thankful my friend Ryan invited me on last minute. When he said I might need an ice axe, I knew it was going to tough. This hike seriously makes Zion's Angel's Landing look like sunset stroll in the park.
The team hiked from Whitney Portal, 13 miles (21 km) west of the town of Lone Pine, California. The hike was about 22 miles round trip although I managed to add on 5 extra miles by getting lost. Can you believe the total elevation gain of over 6,100 feet? That's higher than any mountain on the east coast.
Well, I'll let the pictures do the talking. I'm on my way to Colorado. Happy Trails!
