||Mt. Rainier - Tuesday|
Error processing SSI file
On Tuesday, we woke up around 9 am and ate some breakfast. Bro. White cooked up some snow for his breakfast, there was plenty to go around. Then we packed up camp and started for Camp Muir. It was another 2-3 hours away from where we camped. That was one of the hardest parts of the hike because we were hiking with our full packs on. I was exhausted when we got to Muir and was relieved when we took a short break. At those kinds of times, you can't believe how comfortable rocks can be! We weren't done when we got to Muir, we still wanted to go all the way to Ingraham Flats. We had to traverse across a big glacier and dodge some nasty looking crevasses. It was so hot going across this part that I had to shed a layer. We made it to Ingraham Flats and had made camp by 5 pm or so. We could look up and see the trail up to the summit. We cooked dinner and went to bed early in preparation for the early start we would be taking the next day.
