Day 38 – 24 mi – PCT mile 771

DSC03412

Start: tentsite at mile 764

End: tentsite at mile 771

Miles covered: 7 on the PCT and 17 to Mount Whitney and back. Most of the 17 miles were with a day pack only, but I had to count them. It is Mount Whitney after all.

PCT mile marker: 771/2652

Highlight: The summit, of course!

Biggest challenge: Getting enough miles in to be able to get over Forester Pass at a decent hour the next day.

Interesting rock formations near the summit:

The three lakes I could see most of the way up and down Mount Whitney. The one on the far right is appropriately named Guitar Lake:

  1. Hello from the East Coast. Standing on top of the lower 48. It is a nice view from up there and cold! Beautiful day. Keep it up!

    1. It’s a strange feeling to be looking down on everything around. The PCT is incredible.
