Not fair!  Mountains are bigger than I am and can beatcha up pretty good.  Mt. Jefferson in Oregon's Cascade Range is 2nd highest in the state.  Incredibly beautiful with Mt. Jefferson Wilderness Park and its crystalline lakes at its base.  Packed in 'bout 7 miles, camped, and decided to try to see how how high I could get next day doing a seldom challenged route on the north flank.  No experience.  No gear.  Solo.  Let's just say, I blew it.  Got trapped with no place to go.  Stupid.  Thought I might die so took pictures of near 1,000 foot drop.  Managed to wiggle my body down crevice, across 60 degree glacier with cliff at bottom, and rolled to safety.  Ain't gonna do that no more.  Found chicken feathers in my shirt after packing out.  Too old.  Want to die in bed with my boots OFF.
