Mount Whitney

After summiting Yosemite’s Half Dome a few years ago, I decided I needed to set my sights on another goal. Mount Whitney it was. So in January of 2002 I gathered a list of four other friends and sent in our permit application on February 1, 2002. Mount Whitney is the only location that I am aware of that requires a permit for day hikes.

I waited and waited for notification, finally giving up hope. Then my wife called me at work to say the permit reservation came in the mail that day. We were set!
