Practice hike up Mt. Baldy to get ready for the July 9th hike up Mt. Whitney (elevation 14,491 feet). Joanna, Staci, Keith and Lindy, Paul and Hitomi, Jack, Greg, Michael, and me (with a lot of beef jerkey)! It took about 2 and a half hours to get up using the Sierra Hut Club route. At the top, we saw a really cool glider plane, and enjoyed the view for almost two more hours. It took about two hours to descend down the famous "Devil's Back Bone" trail.
