Another glorious Sierra day in which one seems to be dissolved and absorbed and sent pulsing onward we know not where. Life seems neither long nor short, and we take no more heed to save time or make haste than do the trees and stars. This is true freedom, a good practical sort of immortality. #johnmuir#johnmuirwilderness#mtwhitney#mtwhitneysummit#mtwhitneytrail#themountainsarecalling#highsierra#easternsierra#us395#hwy395#mountainlife#nomadlife#roadwarrior#optoutside#mountaineering#topoflower48#outdoorsman#soloadventure#adventureenthusiasts#adventurer#explorer#mountainman#peoplewhoadventure#wildernessbadass#wildernessculture

8 months ago my good friend Mike and I started a journey that ended on top of Mt Whitney. All of our planning, training, and pouring over details paid off in spades as we scaled the mountain in a little more than 15 hours. What a way to celebrate my 47th trip around the sun. And to complete the journey we hiked to cathedral lake in Yosemite on the way home. Not bad for a couple old guys ticking of a bucket list entry.

For those of you climbing Mt Whitney from the West, Hitchcock Lakes offer solitude and incredible scenery vs Guitar Lake or any other option along the trail. This shot was taken at the lower lake looking West, during our weeklong Sierra trip with a friend in August of 2015. #highsierra#mtwhitney#hitchcocklakes#nofilter

“I’m breathing...Are you breathing, too?...It’s nice, isn’t it? It isn’t difficult to keep alive, friends-just don’t make trouble-or if you do make trouble, make the trouble that’s expected.” Common Man from A Man for All Seasons. Sir Thomas More was not breathing. King Henry VIII had him executed for making the kind of trouble that wasn’t expected. The play isn’t about Common Man. It’s about Sir Thomas More. And, for that reason, I’d rather be the type of person that makes the trouble that isn’t expected. They don’t write books about the people that play it safe.

Total: 256 miles from Cottonwood Pass to Happy Isles Yosemite. 49,753 vertical feet gained, 55,681 descended. Summited Mt. Whitney (14,504’) and Half Dome (8,839’) 13 mountain passes. At times I didn’t think I could do it, or would make it. Literally up to the day we left things were up in the air about going. Moments where I thought I could die, and others spent in awe. It has certainly been one of the best experiences of my life. #jmt#johnmuirtrail#thruhike#hiking#highsierra#yosemite#halfdome#mtwhitney#backpacking

//Dreams don't compare to this reality.// • We stood breathless at the beauty, diversity, and majesty of God's creation. We showered in the creek. We watched the shooting stars. We admired the pine trees. We pondered the vastness of the mountains. We ate so much food. We drank countless gallons of water. We helped a girl get lifeflighted off the trail. We had a black bear walking around our campsite in the middle of the night. We got many bug bites. We got a couple injuries. We dug and pushed our car out of dirt. We watched people make it. We watched people turn back. We watched people almost slip to their death. We watched people battle altitude sickness. We offered to help. But through it all, we did it, all six of us. We woke up at 2:30AM. We started the hike. We finished the hike. We summitted Mt Whitney. 7:55 hours up. 5:25 hours down. We made friends, from SD, LA, and all over the world. All united with the same goal: 14,508FT. Perseverance. Accomplishment. Success. Victory. With His guidance, protection, and strength alone. 🙏 Soli Deo Gloria.

I've gotten into this habit of leaving on my birthday and trying to find something cool to do. For #35... I decided I would climb the highest peak in the #continentalusa and watch the sun rise. A long way from the knee injury last year. I can wait to conquer another one again. Thank you #mtwhitney for the incredible memory and thank you to the crew that I was with!! :) To 35 more years (and more hopefully) of hiking, park bagging, and adventuring. #hikingadventures#hiking#optoutside#adventure

Notice the fenced in area at the top right of this picture. That is where the mine shaft is located. Fenced in by the Bureau of Land Management so no one falls in. The host rock (what the quartz vein was in) dump pile is on the left and the low grade quartz is on the right. The high grade ore was packed out by mules and the lower grade material left behind.

We did it! We summited Mt Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48. She’s a beastly 14,508 ft high and one of the most mentally and physically challenging things I’ve done. 🔸 I was particularly angsty about this trip because we actually attempted the summit last year and had to turn around about a 1/2 mile from the summit. 🔸 I hate defeat and this beastly mountain taught me how much I’ll resist something I don’t think I can succeed at. 🔸 I’m grateful I did it. I’m grateful I pushed through the fear. I’m grateful for a husband who believes in me and will push me even in my discomfort. 🔸 As cliche as it may seem we all face mountains of some kind. I hope my story reminds you to continue to face them! 🔸 Now please excuse me while I go take an ice bath and get a massage and pedicure. 😩 #mtwhitney#hiking#failure#fear

#flashbackfriday to hiking #mtwhitney. Once you get passed the portal is like going down the rabbit hole to Wonderland! I’ve never seen the movie, Alice in Wonderland, but @amylmck and I talked about it during one of out runs. (We talk about a lot of things, some are strange.. very strange things 🤣) The way I see it, Whitney portal transport you to a whole new world; no neighborhoods, no cars, no malls, little cell reception. Just humans and nature!! This place is magical, I’ll definitely want to go back for more but for now we’ll have to bag the local peaks. We’ll be going to #mtbaldy tomorrow , it’ll be Amy’s first. Where will the trails take you this weekend? #dirtbagrunners#balegaimpi#fuelyourpassion#optouside 🌱 ✌🏼

Day 3: July 27 Guitar Lake to Mount Whitney Summit to Tyndall Creek 20.7 Miles ................................................... I LOVE summit hiked that require a pre-dawn start. Watching headlamps bobbing along switchbacks ahead and behind me brings me so much joy and energy. I am one of those lucky individuals who does really well at altitude despite living at sea level and I always thank my lucky stars at every summit, especially when I’m standing on the highest mountain in the contiguous United States! PSA- the marmots at the base of the Whitney trail are BEASTS. This one took an Ursack over the edge of the cliff with him. I swear the ground shook when he waddled...#jmt2018#mtwhitney#14505ft#thetrek#worldsfattestmarmot

#fbf Ok I have one more #mtwhitney picture to share. Well maybe not one more. Haha. This was one of many creek crossings along the hike. This was a log crossing over Lone Pine Creek. As you see in the next pic (swipe) we crossed it first in the dark. I am actually surprised I did not fall in. Lol I have had a busy past 10 days when I think about it. With in the past 10 days I climbed Mt. Whitney, Mt. Baldy and had 4 speed work outs. Not to mention working and everyday life/mom stuff. Ok when I think about that I don’t feel so bad that I feel tired at times. It’s crazy what we are capable of doing! I always say we make time for what’s important and we make excuses for what’s not.

A little more than 1/2 way along the Whitney trail are the infamous 97 switchbacks where the path zigzags for 2.2 miles from about 12,000 to 13,700 ft. Doing this hike in August without having to navigate through snow and ice on the switchbacks gave me the opportunity to gawk at the towering granite walls beautifully lit by the serendipitous balance of the morning sun and clouds. #trek#naturephotography#hike#hiking#mtwhitneytrail#mtwhitney#granitemountain#sierranevada#sierranevadamountains#inyonationalforest#mountwhitneytrail#mountains#mountain#trail#trekking
