summit shots - 38 years apart

The top photo was taken in 1973 by my dad - I'm the 11-year old wearing the baseball cap and the red sweater. We summitted via the Mt. Whitney Trail.

The lower photo was taken by SP member "Holsti97" on August 10th, 2011 - I'm 49 years old and we summitted via the Mountaineers Route.

Re: Love these photos

Thanks Marmaduke! I used to have a motto when it comes to climbing/hiking peaks, "Life is too short for repeats!" I have since backed off that philosophy because going with new people is a whole new enriching experience and adds to one's history of memories.

Re: Classic...

and it was very enjoyable for me to be there for your 48th state highpoint (and to revisit my first state highpoint). Thanks for your role in making this photo possible!
