Ascent Trip Report

I had the morning off before I had to be on the ship down in San Diego, so I opted for a pair of local peaks that I have needed for a while. Mt Whitney is straightforward, so I am surprised at the lack of ascents. The roads are public roads to my start point and there is a dirt road to the summit that seems to see a lot of local neighborhood walkers. There was a guy on the summit doing tower maintenance that I said hello to. It was my first hike in my new shoes, though it was barely long enough to be called a hike. Onward to Mt Israel!
