Back into the Beartooth Mountains

Froze to Death Plateau (10,000 ft) - Yes, that is me wearing the cowboy hat!

Steep Canyon Wall - on our way up to Froze to Death Plateau

Lake in the Beartooths - elevation 8,500 ft

This was my second big hike in the Beartooths. I experienced altitude sickness again. Splitting headache and nausea. I didn't feel like I wasn't getting enough oxygen, but my body was definitely depleted. Froze to Death Plateau is just 2,000 ft below Montana's highest peak - Granite Peak. This summer I hope to climb Granite once most of the snowfields melt. Hopefully my body will be accustomed to the altitude by then.
