At 12,000 feet in elevation, there are no trees to offer shelter from the elements, and nothing much grows on this granite. If you happened to be here during the storm as I was you better hide in a tent as this is the only cover you can find here.
Being in such place makes you stronger, makes you appreciate life and nature.
If you open yourself to these feelings, you will be delighted!
