    Wheeler peak. 9/4/16

    Even with the 50 mph winds we pushed through to the 13,065' summit of Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park this weekend. The winds were bad and only 4 of our group of 15 made it to the top.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1473141659450.jpg

    That's awesome! Glad you are feeling good enough to walk on it like that. It's like 8+miles.

    Although, I don't think it was too hard of a hike, except for the elevation.

    Good pic too. :)

    Ya. It isn't too bad of a hike. Little rough coming down with all the uneven amd jagged rocks, but starting to feel pretty good again. Here in a pic looking up at the last ascent and then looking down from the same location.

    If you zoom in, you can actually see a few people higher up on the hill
