Mount Whitney is the highest peak in the lower 48, and tens of thousands of hikers, backpackers, and climbers of all skill levels come to give this famous mountain a try each year. Mt Whitney towers more than 10,000 vertical feet above the Owens Valley, and because of it's lofty position, it is the most sought after peak in all of North America.
The above aerial video features a flight around Mt Whitney Group as seen from a Light Sport Aircraft that is owned and operated by my long time climbing partner Mike Koerner. Thanks to Mike's expertise as a pilot and his ability to hold the aircraft steady, I was able to take a contiuous video showing the many peaks of the Mt Whitney Group from several angles.
The Video will give each viewer an incredibly opportunity to see Mt Whitney (and the surrounding areas of the Sierra Nevada) from a vantage point that cannot be duplicated on the ground by the Mt Whitney hiker or climber.
So sit back and enjoy a comfortable flight around Mt Whitney!!
At Timberline Trails, we purpose to continue to add many more videos in an effert to showcase more of God's wondrous creation. Thanks for watching!
