My thermometer read 90 degrees, although Richard say it was 95 and Kirk said 99. Whichever, it was certainly the most mild weather for this ride that I have felt. We started at about 9:30 p.m. with the following participants: Alan, Bill, Danny, Deborah, Dennis, Richard, and me on bikes, Ed and Kirk supporting.
Everyone made it to the sleep spot, between 2:00 and 3:30 a.m. Here is Richard's picture leaving the sleep spot in the morning.
This is some of the group stopped at Trail Camp to filter water. Picture courtesy of Richard.
These next two pictures are from Richard from the spot he had to turn around. He couldn't go any farther, despite being so close to the top. See the arrow indicating the peak.
