we hiked this mountain on september 30, 2000. we hiked the whitney portal trail and enjoyed the rigor this trail had to offer. lone pine lake was awesome! there were many other people on the trail but it never really took from the experience. the switchbacks were wonderfully breathtaking. the 13,600 point was exciting where the inyo national forest meets the sequoia national forest. from here we could view the sierra nevada, and guitar lake. georgeous! the trail was interesting as we pushed to the summit. incredible ridges and cliff edges............the top was perfect. a wonderful part of california. we want to go back and do the mountaineers route.
