At 7pm on Wednesday, July 26th, Lisa and some of her crew members left to summit Mount Whitney. Their destination will leave them 14,494 feet above sea level.
Lisa is accompanied on this hike by Mike Artino, Pam Burwell, Todd Milbert, Finlay Woodruff, and Marshall Ulrich.
Between the end of the Lisa's finish of the official Badwater race and her start of the climb to Mount Whitney's summit, the crew gathered at a portal cabin where they ate cheesburgers, drank chocolate shakes, ate Finlay's birthday cake, and got in some well-earned rest.
Please think of Lisa and crew as they hike through the night. I'll provide an update on their journey tomorrow.
