I just now released 2 of my 3 dayhike permits for the Whitney MT on July 28. So if that's your date, and if you are dayhiking Whitney and need 2 permits, give the Visitor Center in Lone Pine or Permit Center in Bishop a call.
If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them more than the miracle of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.
- Lyndon Johnson, on signing the Wilderness Act into law (1964)
