As you near Trail Crest on this alpine route you travel from the John Muir Wilderness on the east side to Sequoia National Park west of the Sierra Nevada crest. At 14,495 feet Mount Whitney is the highest point in the US outside of Alaska.

I think it's long overdue Anne!  Mount Whitney is such a popular destination this time of year. This image was made a couple years ago in October after a fresh snowfall.

Thanks +Leyla A. Roberson - no one lives there now except the California park rangers. All of the buildings are kept in a state of "arrested decay" to preserve the feeling as much as possible.
 
A colonnade of western hemlock trees (Tsuga heterophylla) growing from a nurse log, Hoh Rain Forest, Olympic National Park, Washington USA

In the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest the cycle of life is perpetual. Here, young hemlock trees take root on a fallen log as the competition for space is at a premium.

thanks for the recommendation. +Greg Vaughn  - is there a place where I can order Photographing Washington directly from you rather than going through Amazon?

It's easy to see why the Hawaiian royalty chose the Kona Coast as their home in the Islands. Have a great day everyone!

The last several years we lived in Hawaii, the view from our house up in the South Kona coffee country stretched from Kealakekua Bay to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau. I sure do miss that view.
