Mt. Whitney 2007

Eight years ago today, we started hiking just after midnight (when our permits were valid) with two friends to the top of Mt. Whitney. It's the tallest peak in the lower 48. We took 16 hours from start to finish, hiking 22 miles. We'd been engaged just two months at this point and were loving life.


I'm only bummed we didn't know there was a geocache up there when we hiked! We would've totally found it!

I love these fun adventures we had with our partners before every happiness became just a little (or a lot) bittersweet.

That is awesome. BTW could you make a post about geocaching. I have been wanting to do it for a long time but have no clue where to start.

That is some serious hiking my friends! You have an amazing smile for that kind of hiking... ok, the 2 months engaged part might be contributing to the smile, but still. Also, I wander around wondering if there are geocaches lurking about without me knowing it all the time now...
