|Husband and a friend
The weather was perfect. We started very early in the morning about 5:50. We stopped at Halfway Camp and set up camp and then continued on with lighter packs. The hike was long and hard. Very close to the top my partners were discouraged and considered quitting. I was going on no matter what. Another hiker gave us encouragement that we were only minutes from the summit and that spurred everyone on. So glad we did. The view was phenomenal.
