    Trailhead was at 3200' and the summit was 6250' so we only gained 3000' in elevation over three miles. I wish I had never read the sign that said that 2 1/2 miles of switchbacks were a 20% grade!

    Sunny at the bottom, freezing fog and snowfields at the top with visibility less than ten feet! More pictures soon.

    I was very pleased with how my body performed. My muscles worked well, my energy was level and constant and, in spite of the hard work, my scale was down a couple pounds this morning. In the past it would have shot up 5 pounds.

    For trail food I took a coconut milk banana smoothie, dry italian salami, hard bolied eggs and nut based trail mix. My hiking partner had two bananas, a sandwich and some grapes. Mine.....fat, protein and fat, fat and protein, protein, fat, protein and a bit of natural sugar from dried fruit. Hers........sugar, sugar, wheat and a little protein. Hmm...while she is eating real food I don't think she qute has it figured out yet.

    No muscle soreness today AT ALL. Surprising!

    Kicking back midway through the hike. Butters belongs to my hiking partner and that little dog was a trooper. First time in a pack and loved it!

    My dogs are full of piss and vinegar today. OMG!!! Heading up into the hills to wear them out. Oh, I might work my muscles a bit while I'm up there but it is all about getting them tired and happy!

    Love the pics! You have such a purely peaceful expression! The wilderness is obviously your sanctuary.

    From this great start...



    Conditions are changing....did I pack extra clothing?



    This is what waited for us at the summit. From sunny and sixty degrees to windy, foggy and just above freezing.

    What a great hike!

    Wow great pictures. I can imagine you got quite a work out. Hopefully your canine company did as well

    Definitely a workout for all of us. It was wonderful. Never once did I feel like I had bitten off more than I could chew and that right there makes for a good day.
