Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7861)

I summited Whitney 2 weeks after leaving Florida. I was in my early 20s then. Aside from my eyes getting severly sunburned from the snowfield and high altitude it was a spectacular hike. Hope to do it again sometime. Recently at the age of 47 I summited Long's peak in the Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. One week later a 26 year old climber died up there. I believe from exposure. Be careful.. Jay
