well saturday we decided to work on our lungs so we hiked to camp muir on mt. rainier
it sits at 10,090ft. parking lot is at around 5,000.
im a little sore today and defiantly sunburned. it was me, my wife, and my buddy nick. for those that aren't familiar with it, camp muir is the base camp for the summit push on the tallest peak in WA.

Beautiful country. To bad the boots were giving fits. Looks like a good way to spend the day.

Very cool!.. Was there a lot of people?.. I plan on climbing Adams while visiting family up there sometime within a month... I climbed Adams when I was 10 with my grandpa and there was few people on the trail... I hear it's a zoo nowdays...

oh ya it was crowded, my friend that was with me climbs adams all the time, he just day trips it up and back. if you do it soon you can glissade most of the way back down before it melts.
