Heading West – Mt Whitney

Heading West after a visit to Death Valley.This is Hwy 136 going towards Lone pine.

That high peak on the left is Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States (and of course the Sierra Nevada, which is that mountain range you see with the dusting of snow.

The brown hills in the foreground are the Alabama Hills, an area where many old Westerns were filmed. It is quite an interesting place to go do some photography and very easy to get to. There are also some arches there, really excellent at sunrise, especially when you can frame Mt. Whitney inside the arch.

As I said, this is on our way back home from Death Valley where we spent a week shooting, the time of year is early March, a great time to visit Death Valley.
