The sun was brutally hot, we were so thirsty- but first, let me take a selfie.
The top kept looking farther and farther away and for a while I was convinced the mountain was growing taller as we climbed.
After about an hour and half, we finally made it to the top. Two 24 oz bottles of water is not near enough for hiking in the desert, by the way. I think I sweat at least 64 oz, so let that be a lesson.
2,700 feet. Not bad for two sea level rookies!
Please take note of the shirtless man looking at his watch right behind Jacob's left hand. Yes, there were crazies up there running up the mountain. For exercise.
Simmer down, weirdos!
But the view was pretty incredible.
