My Seventh time at 14,497.61......where do they get the .61 from? The Whitney trail was as utterly sublime as my first go at it a decade ago. Even as the trail has become as crowded as LA freeway traffic it remains awe inspiring. I watched four beginner hikers who I served as guide to, drop there jaws as we hit the 97th switchback. The vistas that opened up are truly mental floss for city life stress. Thanks Stephanie, Lou, Margie and Dave for all the hard work.
