  • We were there only for half a day because the park was on fire. But, even though there was some smoke the landscape was gorgeous. This park is huge and obviously one needs more than a day to truly enjoy it. There are trails for hiking or just a simple walk surrounded by pure nature, there is just so much to see. Will definitely go back for a weekend with the family
  • Tried to visit the Whitney Portal, as far as you can go in your car, but found the road closed part way up and looking up at the switchbacks I wasn't foolish enough to attempt to go on foot like the owners of the other parked vehicles, way above my pay grade, not to mention my personal fitness level...mostly my fitness level. But the drive up to that point was well worth the short trip from town, lots of photo opps. Took a turn down movie road, until my poor little fusion was challenged by the unpaved road, but even then it's amazing landscape.
