Pierce County Highpoint Trip Report

Mount Rainier

Date: July 20, 2003

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.
