Camping below Mt Whitney
First glimpse of Lone Pine Campground. Ahh… this was going to be way better than the Death Valley experience.Looking 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.Next morning 7:23 am, looking out over our ‘neighbors’. Our elevation was 5860′ (1786 m) and mighty chilly.I was a bit underwhelmed at what I thought was the sum total of the sunrise….
Until…… the lightshow began around 7:37 am

Everything I had hoped for… and then some.
