My first peak over 10,000'. An excellent lesson in altitude sickness from a lack of hydration. I still made the summit, but now I really hydrate before, during and after all climbs. I summitted on a sunny and cloudless day with some spectacular scenery. This was the start of a quest to climb the highest peaks in the 13 western states.
