This looks more like a sunset but it really is the sun rising in the east.
The morning sun on Mt. Whitney.
There's my little buddy.
It was around 30 years ago when I was last on that road. We camped at Whitney Portal Campground then the kids and I hiked to the top. Once was enough. I had to stop a couple times on the drive back down that road to let the brakes cool off in the old Land Rover. Once was enough for that too. Motor homes are not advised. Take my word on that.
