    So last weekend, myself, my girl, and 3 others made the trek from San Diego up to Lone Pine CA to hike Mt. Whitney
    14,497 ft
    highest peak in continental US

    not a technical climb, but difficult in the fact that it was UP UP UP almost the entire way. We started at 0330, and I got back to base camp at 2000 (8pm).

    It was painful, long, and amazing, beautiful, and something to put on my list of great things to do.

    If any of you are interested in hiking, it was great!!!
