Mt. Whitney - additional photos

Now that I have acquired the photos from my hiking companions I have a couple of additional shots from the killer day hike to share with everyone.

Everything had to be packed out. I think my expression translates to "der?" or something along those lines. That loosely translates to "I have to poo in what?".

Here I'm pretending that we don't still have 57 switchbacks to ascend. Great view behind us though!

At this point it seemed we had less than 1000 ft to climb. Unfortunately, immediately after this point we descended 700 or so ft and then started to climb again. It was the second encounter of 13 600 ft that brought on my rage with the mountain...

Made it! Whew!
