Timberline Lake

Definitely worth a rest stop at this point as beyond the landscape becomes much harsher. And on the return from Whitney it is something of an oasis - a chance to shelter in the shade and soothe tired feet.

Ominous warnings as we join the main Mt Whitney trail. Fortunately for us there was nothing to worry about on this day.

In the Mountains

Trees are very nice but it is good to get into the mountains. This is looking towards The Miter from near Sky Blue Lake.
