Mount Whitney is the highest peak in the continental United States. Reaching an elevation of 14,497 ft, it towers more than 10,000 vertical feet above the Owens Valley, and because of its lofty position, Mt Whitney is considered the most sought after peak in all of North America. This fact sends over 30,000 people each year to its slopes in an effort to conquer the peak.
The above slideshow is just a sampling of some of the wonderful things you will see if you decide to take on the adventure of going to the top of Mt Whitney. You will see photos from your starting point at Whitney Portal along with all the popular campsites as you proceed up the mountain. All this finishes up with some spectacular views from Trail Crest as well as some great sights from the Summit of Mt Whitney.
We are also pleased to share with you some of the fine music (by permission) from "Rhythm on the Rock." The music you will hear on the slide show is "Ruth and Boaz" performed by Paul French and composed by Chris French. I would like to encourage you to check out the above links for much more music and information.
At Timberline Trails, we purpose to add many more slide shows in order to showcase more of God's wondrous creation. We hope you have enjoyed the above slide show of Mt Whitney.
