It's a perfect morning! I am now 100% into the high sierras. I spent most of the 26 miles hiked yesterday between 10k-11.5k ft in elevation and this morning I am going to leave this wonderful place that is Crabtree Meadows, and I will summit Mt. Whitney in just a few hours! It's been 766 miles of hiking to get to this trail junction, only 3 hours, 9 miles, and about 4000 ft elevation gain stand between me and that mountain top, 14,504 ft high!
So many emotions and so entirely ready to feel the raw energy and relief when I finally set foot back atop!
See you on the other side...
