Today’s weekly post is going to double as documentation of our latest California adventure. There are plenty of pictures of the kids included.
Somehow Peter and I managed to live in Pasadena for three years before realizing that we were only a few hours away from the tallest mountain in the contiguous US. We recently created a bucket list of things we want to see or do the rest of the time we’re in California, and seeing Mount Whitney and the Sierras was at the top. Best of all, some of our church friends live only a little over an hour away from the base of Whitney, and they graciously hosted us for the weekend.
Hiking Mount Whitney requires a permit, but thankfully the first few miles of the trail are open to anyone. Besides Andrew crying the first few minutes of the hike as he settled into the Ergo carrier, it was a great hike. One of the highlights of the hike was Katelyn’s excitement over snow. Each time we found snow on the trail she requested a snow sandwich.
