Hike to Laban Rata

Chris & I left the trailhead around 10am with our guide Julius.  (I know that’s probably not how he spells it… but that’s the best that I could pronounce.) 

The trail was steep & I started really feeling the altitude about 2 or 3 hours in.  Chris (who had just climbed Mt Rainer) taught me a couple helpful tricks, including power breathing (taking a full, short breath out every few breaths).

We arrived at Laban Rata around 4pm.
