After work yesterday I headed up the Whitney Portal Road with a pack full of overnight gear and camped at the Portal Campground - which is officially closed. Here's my little bivy spot.
The morning light on the nearby crags.
Ever pleasing Sierra granite.
The deep snow made skinning a chore.
The deep snow made skiing a blast!
The view of the chute from the Portal Road.
Packed up, got out of there, and made it to work by 10:30.
