Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty ~ Victoria Erickson

A few days ago, my brothers and I attempted the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, but we left the mountain in defeat. Although we were only about half a mile away from summitting Mt. Whitney, I still am proud of all of us, considering the fact that we didn't have proper gear, nor enough training for the hike. Throughout the last portion of our hike from Trail Camp (~12,000 ft), we woke up early to hike around 3am. As we inched our way up, we had to hike through both snow and ice. Although my brother first showed signs of altitude sickness, he continued up. Once we reached just past Trail Crest, we had to deal with the cold icy winds, and we all hoped for the sun to rise quick to warm us up. We all tried to push ourselves further and further, despite our freezing hands, face and toes. Unfortunately, when we reached ~half mile from the summit, I showed signs of hypothermia and went through a shock/seizure and couldn't move at all. Thankfully, I recovered eventually and had to turn back and hike down. Thank goodness for all of the nice fellow hikers who were able to help me and who were concerned about me. My brothers and I will definitely be back and be more prepared next year. 👍

You can find the Mobius arch in the beautiful Alabama Hills near Lone Pine. The Alabama Hills are also the site where lots of movies were filmed, besides the Mobius Arch perfectly frames Mt Whitney in its window👌#alabamahills #mobiusarch #california #roadtrip. #movielocation #mtwhitney

The most amazing hike I’ve done so far. I made it to the summit of Mt. Whitney Thursday, Oct. 18th. Not too much snow or ice. Only used micro spikes on the switch backs on the way down. A profound experience.
