I've climbed Mt. Whitney 53 times, and never tired of going back. It's one of the most Alpine looking regions of the Sierras.
Happy climbing,
Marc

It's taken from an area called Alabama Hills on the foothills of Mount Whitney.

leave the house,
Put on my boots and grab my spouse.
This is one hell of a mountain,
But it deserves our respect,
So guess I'll quit shoutin'.

Hi Larry,
I have no doubt you get out of the house at least once a day. All you have to do, this time, is to get in your car and head for Lone Pine and start the hike. I was telling someone that I have climbed Mt. Whitney 53 times, and I probably will do it another 10 without getting bored with it. When I go to this area I always have to at least stop and look at the majesty of the entire massif.
Thanks for dropping by Larry,
Happy climbing,
Marc

Really beautiful! I love the powdery snow effect. Have you climbed Whitney before?

Only 53 times, with many of those in one day to the top and back. Call me crazy but I love this mountain. I recommend doing it off season, like Mar-Apr,to avoid crowds.
Thanks for dropping by and the vote,
Happy climbing,

53 TIMES!? Well, I thought that just going to brutal Lake of the Angels in the Olympics four times in one summer was a lot...but 53 is amazing. You must know this mountian almost better than anyone in the area, at least. Have a great day:)

you like the best:
(1)from the Sequoia NP side?
(2)from the Lone Pine side?

Early October is a great time to go, if you
can withstand the wind coming in from the north. Have an enjoyable day, Marc!!

Definitely from Lone Pine. And the north wind happens only when a storm is coming from the north, otherwise it's from the west.

Thank you so much for dropping by.
I did have to look around for the spot, but I'm sure there are better places to be found later. That's what makes it fun.

Happy climbing,
Marc
