Hot Plane on Plane Action

Mt. Lyell's at 13,114ft.
I was once at about 13,000ft, just right of this next picture.
There was more snow, and the pic don't show the two yard wide ice bridge we hiked to peak out, and go over. It also don't show the 300 or more foot drop to our right with an icy blue frozen lake. And it don't show snow finches we saw up there, or the sky pilot.
It's different up there, at 13K or so.
Can't IMAGINE what it's like above even 14K and more, like in the Andes, or the Himilayas, where 13K is still lowlands to 19K and 20+K ranges. Oxygen, please.
If ya can't travel, let yer mind wander. There's some glorious pics in the lead link I posted.
Don't let the bears get yer food, filter yer water.
Keep the laces tight, and the moleskin handy.
