View west from Whitney summit

Early B. - PCT - Jun 1, 2014 - Mt. Whitney!
Clear and near freezing this morning, hiking before 6 am. Left tent, bear canister and most gear for the day. Took all of my clothes!
I have so many fantastic photos of the climb up to Trail Crest where we met the trail from Whitney portal, along the ridge and at the top, arriving around 915.
With the altitude it was zone 1 heart rate and zone 3/4 breathing, but legs felt good. Fantastic views from the top, I will upload photos to Flickr in 2 or 3 days. Lots of hikers from the Whitney Portal side. Stayed at the top nearly 2 hours, sunny and almost no wind.
Easy descent, felt fantastic from the great climb and higher oxygen levels.
Packed up our campsite and hiking by 2 pm. Want to get in a good position to climb over Forester pass tomorrow , 13000 ft and the highest point on the PCT (Whitney was side trip).
Hiked 12 non PCT miles up and down Mt. Whitney, and an extra 4 PCT miles today.
