Mt. Whitney at Dawn

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:
