They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This one however is only worth four of them : I'm going to Whitney!
The permit reservation came in the mail today confirming what I had been expecting since I applied in February, we will have our 2 days on the mountain. According to the Mt.Whitney lottery website most can expect their results April 1st fortunately this one came a little early.
This prevents us from having to make a multi-day climb out of Horseshoe Meadows or Onion Valley or even trying a treacherous ascent up the Mountaineers Route. We'll go the easy way, right up the Mt. Whitney trail to the highest summit in the lower 48 states.
