Mt. Whitney MR in November 2007

This was my second ascent of Mt. Whitney in one year. This time around we have decided to do the MR in winter like conditions in November. It was a bit cold overall, but not as bad as one would have thought. Temperatures dipped under 20 but not much more than that. Weather was great and we made the top on the 2nd day. Late on Sunday I was back home after a wonderful icy hike in Sierra Nevada range.
