With so many images from my trip to Mount Whitney and a handful from the basecamp of Mt. Whitney Portal, I figured I would share a couple more that wouldn’t fit in the summit post.
Mt. Whitney Portal is a great campground just down the hill from the summit. A ways off HWY395, directly West from the town of Lone Pine, this rocky camp provides cheap haven for those seeking the top of the mountain. The only downside I could find is the constant presence of bears at night.
Below is a few shots from camp, and Lone Pine Lake, which is about three miles up the trail from Portral.
