Notes

Amazing hike with Nye. He was driven, it was work keeping up. Camel's Hump summit is over 100' above treeline, an alpine environment which Nye has never before seen. He was surprised how the mountain kept on going up and up and steeper and rockier, more and more, but very willing to keep on going. That summit amazed him, it was hazy with an undercast in the distance. Peaks poked up through looking north, and blue silhouettes of mountaintops swept out like waves. There were through hikers and inexperienced hikers, a real range of characters there. He took the trail down with the same determination. My legs were jello. Simply amazing, I've never seen him so motivated. It was awesome.
