Interesting trip report

"It feels like the whole world is within reach. There is no hiding. It's this comfort and insignificance that gets me out of bed at zero-dark-thirty. I don't know if anyone else will agree, but when I'm sitting lakeside at 12,800', standing on a summit or traversing a plateau, I get this feeling that, 'This is all mine!' I don't get that down in the forests."

You've put it so perfectly. There's a clarity and purity up there like nothing else... no boundaries except your own. It's what keeps me up at night.

Re: Thanks for the laugh

No lie, Pete. She was bad. We've all had slower or faster partners through the years. But this woman was on a WHOLE 'nother level. I had originally mentioned her by name in this report, but too many people complained about calling someone out. So I took out her name.
Apparently in this day and age, "we" can only say nice and enduring things about people. Assigning responsibility and being truthful about others seems to be a quality that is looked on. At least it is for the folks at
