The things they carry... on fourteeners

A note I just got from a reader...

I enjoyed your article on Fourteeners but you failed to list an important item in your packing list. People should take ski goggles. A group of us hiked Mt. Massive in mid-September and as we climbed the wind started to blow hard and further up it started to snow "snow pellets." Before the hike my friend told me not to forget my goggles and I didn't. If I didn't have my ski goggles I would have had to return to the base. -- Jim Kennedy

Thanks Jim, can I use the lab goggles I still have from 8th-grade chemistry?
