Whitney-0371First glimpse of Lone Pine Campground. Ahh… this was going to be way better than the Death Valley experience.Whitney-0444Looking right up at Mt Whitney from the campground. It’s that taller peak off to the right, with the stack of “needles” to the left.Whitney-0492Next morning 7:23 am, looking out over our ‘neighbors’. Our elevation was 5860′ (1786 m) and mighty chilly.Whitney-0496I was a bit underwhelmed at what I thought was the sum total of the sunrise….

Until…… the lightshow began around 7:37 am
