20090714-16. David and Carolyn joined me for a three day trip up the East Buttress of Mt. Whitney. We had beautiful weather and easy hiking to Iceberg Lake on the first day.
We had a fantastic climb up the East Buttress, with a beautiful sunrise and warm temperatures - We reached the summit in our shirt sleeves! After a long lunch and leisurely descent, we turned in for a second night. Late in the morning we finally got started down, and took our time to the burgers and fries at Doug Thompson's Whitney Portal Store.
Thanks for a great time, Carolyn and David!
