Although not technically part of the Pacific Crest Trail Mt Whitney is one of those “I can’t pass up this opportunity” type scenarios. If you are truly hiking the trail when you get to the side trail that leads to Mt. Whitney it almost begs you. It almost like a gravitational pull, that little voice on your shoulder saying, “I dare you”, or “what are waiting for”. Naturally, it was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I wasn’t the only one who decided to hike Mt. Whitney, along the why I end up running into plenty of PCT hikers.
Mr. Mt. Goat and myself hiked to guitar lake, camped at the lake, woke up early the next morning and finally made it to the top about 10:30 or 11:00 AM. The following pictures are from my experience hiking Mt. Whitney.
Have you hiked Mt Whitney? What were your thoughts?
