Mike drove as far up the Whitney Portal Road as possible (closed at the first big switchback). Clouds were swirling around the impossibly close mountains of the eastern Sierra, with recent snow decorating the pine trees.
Interesting. In a matter of a few hours Mike had gone from below sea level to the base of Mt. Whitney.
