Mt Whitney Slideshow

Mount Whitney - is
the tallest peak in the
continental United
States. At 14,496 feet,
and certainly one of the
most photographed
peak. The photo to the
right was taken in the
winter of 2004-2005
when the Sierra's
received record snow. It
is amazing to think, that
only 70 miles away is
Bad Water, Death
Valley. At 282 feet below
sea level it is the lowest
point in the western
hemisphere. What a
contrast! For more

Whitney, and a series of
