About this time I stopped taking photos
the climbing became more difficult and we were completely absorbed
KC memorial plaque near the summit of Keeler Needle
Tired, cold, and thirsty!
Desperately drinking slush water off the Mt. Whitney trail
Sunrise on top of Mt. Whitney, after a pleasant bivy in the summit hut
Descending the Mountaineers Route to Iceberg Lake
Trying to take it all in
Totally worked and happy
Our first time on the Keeler Needle!
