Heath memories

Day 4. This picture is the first clear view we had of the mountain.

This next one is from above the Shira Plateau, not to mention most of the clouds. (My profile picture to the left is from the same area.)

I didn’t get any great pictures of this next landmark – Lava Tower – because I had very little desire to do anything but descend to the next campground. You see, what happens is that the days will often include climbing to a particular height and then camping down lower. This allows one to acclimate better, especially for the sake of sleeping. But what it also does is cause absolutely intense headaches during the rapid ascent.
