Dear Happy,

This was not the highest mountain, but it was the most memorable... On the Tohono O'odham reservation in Arizona, there is a sacred mountain where it is told the Creator lives.

The mountain is Baboquivari, and I camped there under a catclaw acacia tree, and climbed Baboquivari Mountain to visit the actual cave where the Creator lives!

I didn't climb to the summit, but I loved Mt. Ranier :)

Actually climbed by foot, probably Whiteside Mountain in NC. Overall height of the mountain is  4,930 feet. The trail was a 2 mile trail. Here is the view from the top.

I drove up most of the way and only climbed the 10 or 20 feet of Haleakala Volcano on Maui. It is 10,000 ft. And as thin as the air is up there I  don't think I would have been able to climb much more than 100 feet.  Here is a picture looking from the summit down into a cloud filled crater just after sunrise.
