Climbed Mt Whitney.
PCT miles today: 0
Off-trail miles hiked today: 17.4
Late start. Rubylocks, Calf, & we 3 Gay Caballeros. Ahead of us on the trail were The Donald and Last Minute, among others.
|Dionysus and Seano (a ways back) on the way up the mountain.|
No wildflowers much except wallflowers and some mountain heath. But what a spectacular 14er. Remarkable!

Bright cloudless day, and not too many people on the Mtn. We summited the 14,500-feet-high beauty quickly. This is my 19th fourteener in the US and easily stands in among the top ranks of mountains for razzle dazzle.
|Just one view of gajillions atop Whitney.|
|Another view from Whitney. In the distance, the Owens Valley and the White Mountains on the border with Nevada.|

|Back at the camp where tents crowded under the trees. That's Helicopter with the propeller cap.|
