Ascent Trip Report

This was one hike I will never forget. I started out feeling okay. There was snow so I used crampons and an ice axe. I was layered pretty well and as soon as I started, I began to sweat and I thought this was odd because of how cold it was. At one point, I stopped to remove some layers and set my camera on a rock. I didn't realize until I got to about 7700' that I left it somewhere on the trail. So back down I went, looking, I found it at around 7500' on the rock where I left it. Whew! I turned around and by the time I got back to where I had turned around, I knew something was wrong. I had a fever and was burning up, hence the sweating. Returned to the car and 3 days later, I was diagnosed with COVID-19. My wife had brought it home from work. I was fortunate to have not gotten too sick. Like I said, I'll never forget this day.
