A photo of the San Francisco landmark taken from sea level. There is a pretty hefty chain keeping people from going out into the bay. I did however witness a few people swimming from the shore, to the middle of the bridge and back while I was photographing the bridge! That was quite a sight!

After we left Mowich Lake Campground, my buddy and I decided to take the Spray Park trail instead of the Wonderland Trail Proper. I read in Bette Filley's book, "Discovering The Wonders of the Wonderland Trail" that Spray Park offers some magnificent views whereas the Wonderland Trail is more forested and covered. The only catch is that if it's bad weather, Spray Park is absolutely miserable as there is no cover and it's the highest point on the trail. Thankfully we lucked out and had blue skies and great views! Here is a photo of Hessong Rock as seen from the Spray park Trail.

Mt. Whitney Cloud Monster

We summited Mt. Whitney at sunrise and clouds were immediatly coming in, covering the top of the mountain.

I call this photo the "Cloud Monster" with the allusion to the "Smoke Monster" from "LOST" the TV series because that is literally what it felt like taking this picture. I was on top of Mount Whitney at sunrise and the weather was constantly changing. I looked to my right and saw this cloud beginning to envelope myself, my hiking buddies and the entire top of the mountain!
