I had this week off so I decided to take a little drive up 395 to Lone Pine California. Just wanted to get a way for a couple of days and relax. It was a great trip. Took some pictures, did some light bouldering/hiking, and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
On Wednesday got up before dawn and drove partway up the portal road to take some pictures of Whitney. I love sunrises in the Sierras and photographing Whitney at sunrise was more than I could pass up. Below are a few of the pictures I took. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Here are a couple of pre-dawn pictures of Mt. Whitney:
