Getting a Little Altitude

My Mt Whitney trip is coming up quickly, July 20th will be here soon! I wanted to get in at least one higher altitude hike beforehand, but when they closed the National Forests in Az due to fire danger I thought I was out of luck.

Fortunately they re-opened the forests right after July forth, and I got a rare Friday off. Seemed like hiking a mountain was the thing to do!

Left to house in Phoenix a little before 5am, at the trailhead around 8. Started out under blue skies! Glad I got an early start from Phoenix, an hour after I left the summit the thunder started!

Felt good the whole time, pretty much did it with no breaks in one push. I’m feeling good for Mt Whitney and ready to roll!
