I’m finally resting.
My day started at four a.m.
By 4:30 I had three liters of water in my pack and a hiking pole in each hand.
I was going to summit Mt Whitney.
I was headed up the Whitney Portal Trail with two friends and we had dreams of summiting in five hours.
That might have been possible once upon a time in my outdoor life but this month of this year I am in horrible shape.
Especially nine hours later when you are finally resting with your feet in a crystal clear mountain stream!
