Here is a table Pete and VersatileFred created in another location: Note: This trail-video-documenting was done a few years ago at the end of October (just before the first arrival of snow), and under most favorable weather conditions without any wind and no snow or ice on the trail, except for some ice at the cables. The video makes it look easy, but high altitude and inclement weather could make it a tough and very long 22 mile (round-trip) hike.

That is all fantastic stuff. I loved watching Hike Along Pete's videos when I was researching my 1st summit attempt.I watched it over and over familarizing myself with the trail. It was amazing how it made me feel like I had been there before and was just returning to familar trail.
Here is a great video from Friends Of The Inyo. Although not directed toward Mt. Whitney, it displays so much of the diverse, beautiful scenery and wildlife found on the Sierra east side. So much, along with pleasant music!
Last summer we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our 1st Whitney summit, and last weekend we had a "Family Film Festival", where we were all able to watch the various videos we created for this special event.
My nephew, Wesley, posted his on YouTube - it's only two minutes and very much in the style of the old "newsreels" we used to see in the theater before the feature movie. He did a great job with his "voice over" in the style of Lowell Thomas and the black and white effects look really authentic.
It's probably one of the most clever Whitney videos I've seen, here's the link:
