Beautiful day for hiking. I got a late start, around 11am. Passed two guys that had just returned from the summit and said they did the round trip in 4hrs, 4 minutes. I knew I was in trouble because they appeared to be in much better shape than me!

Anyway, I headed out and quickly realized that I wasn't going to make it all the way up. From the valley, I wasn't prepared for the lack of oxygen and unrelenting steady climb. Nonetheless, I perservered for about 3 hours, taking ample breaks and enjoying the cool breezes on the mountain before deciding to head back down the mountain.

My GPS showed that I made it to about 11,000 feet, and that was enough for me. I was moving too slow.

A prescribed burn on Mt. Kendrick obscured some views and probably didn't help my quest for oxygen.

On the way down, I passed the plaque remembering the crashed bomber, and decided that would by my destination next time I hike this mountain.

All-in-all, a good day. Other than the two guys in the parking lot, only saw one other person all day.
