A Perfect Mt Whitney Day Hike

The conditions were perfect for my day hike to Mt Whitney. The thunderstorm risk was very low, so I left as close to dawn as possible to enjoy most of the hike in daylight. Was feeling good and made the summit in about 7 hours, avoided the storms, and had a great time. I created a blog post that outlines everything you need to do if you want to hike Mt Whitney. Feel free to let me know if there's anything I should add.
