Sure, there's an incredible view from the top of Mt. McKinley, and an amazing sense of accomplishment when you reach the mountain's high camp at over 17,000 feet.

But what they didn't tell you in the guidebook or at the base camp is that "piles of feces" are accumulated along the way.

Not just feces, but, as a scientist put it, virus-laden poo. Maybe we should stick to Yellowstone this summer. ben
