JMT09-115 I missed this during my several-week hiking hiatus to take care of work business, but Derek of 100 Peaks has summited Mount Whitney!

If you’re in the mood for some unbelievable pictures and fantastic writing, carve out some time, pour a cup of coffee and enjoy the vicarious experience of a 3-day, 33+ mile trek to the highest mountain in the lower 48.

Congratulations, Derek – and thanks for the inspiration!

Side note / question to other Whitney Summiteers – did you take a DSLR with you on your trip? If not, what did you take, and did you regret not having your big camera? I’m in the middle of a highly indecisive packing planning period right now …
