Mount Whitney Trip Report (#7929)

My wife Sue and I summited around noon on 9/9/99 after starting out at Horseshoe Meadows a few days earlier. I have been on top four previous times and still am thrilled by the view and the rigors of getting there. This was an especially important trip for me as I had made summiting on 9/9/99 a personal goal of mine to help me comeback from a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 1993. With help from Sue, my cane and good weather, I had an enjoyable and memorable hike. I hope to take my boys up on 7/7/7 or 8/8/8 or 9/9/9.
