This reminds me of an unforgettable trek with my father 25 years ago. The highest altitude I have ever climbed up to - approximately 15,000 ft. I accompanied him during one of his geological survey trips to the Himalayas. He is an archaeologist and a geologist. The destination was a glacier called "Shalang" that he and his colleagues were studying during that time. It took us a total of 9 days and we stayed at the glacier for 3 days. My father and his team studied the glacier while I totally enjoyed the effects of the local brew, 20 liters of which we carried with us all the way to the top (well, not all of it made it up there and none of it made it back ).

I dont remember much now but after a certain altitude, there is virtually no vegetation so there is nothing you can burn to cook. I remember one of the porters carried a propane tank and we purchased a couple of goats on our way up that became our food for 3-4 days while we were up there.

The views were unbelievable but unfortunately I have no pictures of the whole trip. I googled and found the coordinates of where we might have been. I think this is +/- 2 miles of where we must have camped:

I am also looking at Humphreys Peak.

Humphreys Peak : Climbing, Hiking & Mountaineering : SummitPost

I've gotten myself some good hiking shoes, some pants, shirts, and jackets from Eddie Bauer. I am currently looking at tents and other camp gear, along with good rain gear.

I am planning Guadalupe Peak sometime late this year. May be Humphreys in early 2016. I have been hiking some small trails here in Texas, not as much elevation, but good distances. 8, 10, 15 mi. This is one of those things you have to stop talking and thinking about and just get out there and start doing.

But be smart, research, read, and watch youtube videos. A lot of these peaks have good video that can give you an idea of what to expect.
