Last Friday (August 14th) we made our 3rd attempt to climb Whitney Portal . . .
. . . the 1st time when we Jeeped Movie Flats in May
. . . the 2nd time when we visited Manzanar in June
. . . the 3rd time was the charm — we made it up to Whitney Portal.
Whitney Portal is the jumping off point to Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the USA.
It was a fun trip was some hairy parts on the way up — mainly steep drop offs among the road.
Some photos from our trip . . .

Mt. McKinley is the tallest mountain in the CONTIGUOUS 48 states. Denali is the tallest mountain in the United States.
DOH! I meant Mt. Whitney. Another age-fart.
