Incredible Nature.....

No, these are not pictures from the Planet Mars, but from the hiking of my granddaughter Maureen when she climbed to the top of the mountain with her friends.

Mount Whitney is the highest summit in the contiguous United States with an elevation of 14,505 feet (4,421 m). It is on the boundary between California's Inyo and Tulare counties, 84.6 miles (136.2 km) west-northwest of the lowest point in North America at Badwater in Death Valley National Park at 282 ft (86 m) below sea level.
