  Mount Whitney
by goingsolo

Do you have the urge to climb the tallest mountain in the Continental United States? Even if you don't, Mount Whitney is worth a visit, as is the entire Eastern Sierra area. Mount Whitney is located in Lone Pine, about 4-5 hours from Los Angeles and about the same distance from Reno, Nevada. At the foot of the mountain, you'll find the unusual Alabama Hills. At its peak, you'll find happyand somewhat altitude dazed hikers celebrating their ascent at the highest summit in the lower 48.

For more information, feel free to browse my Lone Pine page.
