McKinley, known better by its native name Denali, meaning “The High One”, is the highest peak in North America at 20,322′.  My oxygen saturation on the summit was probably in the low 80’s.  The air temperature was well below zero with wind speeds up to 50 miles per hour.  The only things I could focus on were to eat, drink, and keep moving.  […]
