Ascent Trip Report

I thought I was recovering from a summer cold, so our trip started two days later than planned and we completely revamped our itinerary. Smoky Dome was the first on the new agenda. I coughed so much on the ascent that there was not nearly enough available oxygen for the amount of effort required. Our friends John Stolk, Sue Madill, Andrew Strand, and Agnes Telling came by our camp heading for the summit before we were ready to go, and they were just leaving the summit as we arrived, so we didn't have much time for catching up with them. I tried to believe that I was getting better each day of the trip, but when I went to the doctor after returning home I found out that I had a touch of pneumonia and started on antibiotics. NO WONDER I was coughing so much!
