Pierce County Highpoint Trip Report

I was in the party of four who climbed with Dale Millsap. I remember being very
sleepy tired at the summit but when we returned to Camp Muir I was overwhelmed
with a sense of accomplishment and feeling very physically healthy. The lungs
felt brand new.
I was also with Dale and others of our team on our failed attempt of Rainier due
to weather the same week of our Mount Hood summit.
I will note how nice the camping was the night before we hiked to Camp Muir for
our successful summit attempt. "Cat's Meow." That's how Rik Dunham described it.
I think that's a very fitting description.
