Just above, you can see a photo of the summit registry box. When we were on top in early July of 2009, there was one small book and several loose papers inside.
You can record your name, comments, or anything else you would like to share with others. In the above image to the right, you can see me standing in front of the summit research lab.
In the top portion of the photo to the right, you will be able to see the Owens Valley far below. The summit of White Mountain Peak soars over 10,000 vertical feet above this expansive valley.
On the western side, the mighty Sierra Nevada
also rise more than 10,000 feet above the valley floor. These two facts working together make the Owens Valley one of the deepest valleys in all of North America.
