Mt. Princeton with Mav

On Tuesday I hiked Mt. Princeton, 14,197ft. with Maverick. I was warned but could NEVER imagine how Rocky/Boulder it was going to be from beginning to the end! It was his second 14er and I can't express how much I love this dog and how smart he is! When he was leading he knew to wait for me to get over the rock before moving on, when he was behind me he knew to wait for me to get to the next rock before moving. At times I was a little unsteady on the rocks and he would let me put some of my weight on him for balance or for help getting over the rock. I brought his Lola prong but really didn't need to use it, I mostly used it on times when the trail was thin or loose and we stood a chance of falling down the mountain, he just knew what I needed to be done to get through. I also learned that we will never hike again without him wearing boots. I was hoping that applying mushers secret often through the hike would get him through but it didn't, there were just too many miles (I would guess 7?) of those rough type of boulders that just eat the paws up.

Yes. That is snow in the background.

Welcome me??? You didn't know that I was not only a member but also the president of that club.

I adore hiking, 14ers are a bit more like a marathon and maybe not as enjoyable until you reach the summit and realize what you accomplished but I love this beautiful country and the views that I get to enjoy.

Ugh. I had trouble handling the altitude in Rye, and that's only about 6,800 feet. I think 14,000+ would probably kill me. Beaumont's official elevation is 16 feet, and the area I live in is about 20.

I got there the night before which helps and drank a lot of water on the way there and while we were hiking. I still had spells of being dizzy where I would have to stop and take a break for a bit.

LOL Karen... I fancy myself an extreme (ex) long distance hiker. A common walk would be 15 miles with a 4000-5000 foot incline and decline.

Honestly that is probably one of the things that led to my severe osteoarthritis and subsequent joint replacements.

Still... Never been above 11,000 feet. The dogs have never been above 9500.

You and Mav are badasses!!!

That usually caused by Lactic Acid build up Not only does it cause disorientation, but it usually causes muscle fatigue.

Lactic Acidosis is a real concern at higher elevations. Especially when exercising strenuously. i notice it during rapid inclines at altitudes above 7500 feet.

Here is an pretty good article: https://www.healthline.com/health/lactic-acidosis
