Ascent Trip ReportCamped at Mahogany Flat for 2 very windy nights; I was the only person in the campground. The hike to Telescope Peak was excellent, with incredible panoramas all around. Badwater on one side, and Mount Whitney and the High Sierra on the other.
Glad my 2WD Tacoma could make it to Mahogany Flat. The road up there was damaged from recent storms and was in worse condition than I remember.
