RIP Sweet Lowas!

On my bucket list: Mt. Whitney!
My Lowa low hikers have taken me on countless hikes over the past 10 years. I favored these light boots because I rarely, if ever, got blisters.

Most recently I hiked up Mt. Whitney from Whitney Portal. This had been on my bucket list for some time. Apparently, it was on my Lowa's bucket list, as well.

The soles began to rapidly separate from the shoes about 3 miles from the top. Of course, duct tape was the only option.

I was able to continue to the top and hike all the way back down to the portal (14 more miles with duct tape).

My feet never got wet from any of the half dozen stream crossings and I did not get one blister. RIP sweet Lowas!
