Mt Whitney

Mt Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, was calling out to be climbed this summer. I'm not sure why I answered that call, but despite a total lack of acclimatization and an ear infection (and antibiotic-induced digestive issues), I made it. There was a marmot on top to greet me. And six different survey markers.

I meant to comment on this a while ago (obviously). I just think that the shot of Mt. Whitney is amazing. It's such a dramatically lit mountain.

Also, trust you to find all the survey markers to photograph. Very interesting montage.

And hooray for marmots! They're one of my all time favourites!
