Mount Whitney 

14,497.61'/4,420M

After Mount Rainier, I set my goals on Mt. Whitney.  I wanted to climb a mountain at my pace, not one dictated by RMI. So in January 2003, I sent in my application  to the Mt. Whitney lottery. I was lucky and got my first choice which was to spend two nights on the mountain in August.  So in August, I set off to climb the highest mountain in the lower 48 states. My friends Andrew and Kristina joined me in  this adventure.
