After all the training and preparing and trip planning, we were pretty confident that we would be able to reach the summit of Mt. Whitney last weekend. And all of that training and planning absolutely paid off – we had an amazing three days in the high Sierra this week including a successful summit day on Monday. We definitely planned the itinerary completely within our abilities so that while the climb was still challenging at times, we were able to take our time and appreciate (and photograph) the amazing scenery around us. We will post a detailed trip report later, but here are a couple photos!

At the summit!

This weekend we are headed to Big Sur for our last trip of the summer – a relaxing weekend enjoying the beautiful coastline and more luxurious accommodations. For us, that means a cabin instead of a tent and restaurant food instead of rehydrating a freeze dried meal!
