Overall Experience: smile

Mt Withney Mt Whitney peeking through

Monday, we hiked the portion of Mt. Whitney Trail that doesn't require a permit -- about two and a half miles (one way) to Lone Pine Lake. Start elevation was at 8,300 ft. and the lake was about 9,800. We got a late start, but it was a fun hike. It was good to be back in the mountains.
