White Mountain Peak

After reaching the car around 5pm, I rested a while, and chatted with a couple that I had met on the summit. Then it was time for the long drive back home. I didn’t have the time to check out the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the area, but did manage to get some pictures of these unique trees. Some are said to be more than 4,000 years old.

I learned a few things from this trip that will help me in future high-altitude hikes. First thing…sunscreen. My legs were a little red at day’s end. Second thing…drink and snack frequently. I think that really helped in my feeling well the whole hike.

Mount Whitney here I come…
