2014 Hikes Photo Journal #6: Mount Whitney. Tallest mountain in the lower 48. No words. I was in a cast 4 months ago. I told my papa when I was six and a nerdy bookish kid that I would climb it someday. A sense that I can do anything overcame me. That I am blessed. That the world is too beautiful, it breaks my heart. That the good always outweighs the bad when you stay strong and determined and werke. Thank you, God, for this day.
