Photohunt: Numerical

PhotoHunters

A top Mt Whitney

This week's Photohunt theme is numerical. This was definitely a difficult theme for me. I don't take a lot of pictures of items with numbers so it took a while for me to think of the picture above. We hiked to the top of Mt. Whitney in 2004. Mt. Whitney is the tallest mountain on the lower 48 US states at 14,496 feet . It took us just over 15 hours to hike the 22 miles RT with an elevation gain of just over 6,000ft. We had trained for over 6 months and we made it! It was an accomplishment of a lifetime.

Here are a few more pictures:

I agree it was a difficult theme for me too. I love the way you have interpreted it and the scenery is lovely.

OMG -- that's a MAJOR hike. So major I'd call it a climb rather than a hike!!! :O

Hi Marta, excellent take on this week's theme. At 14,496, that is an amazing accomplishment. Incredible views from the top and I really like your last photo the best. Kudos to the both of you for reaching the summit.

Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Agree completely that this is a tough theme. Your photos are wonderful and it is an amazing accomplishment. Have a great weekend.
