Mount Whitney, Inyo National Forest, High Sierra, California, USA.
Mount Whitney (14,505 feet or 4421 m elevation) is the highest summit in the contiguous United States and the Sierra Nevada. Photographed from Alabama Hills BLM Recreation Area on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Owens Valley, west of Lone Pine in Inyo County, California, USA. The Alabama Hills are a popular filming location for television and movie productions. Two main types of rock are exposed at Alabama Hills: 1) orange, drab weathered metamorphosed volcanic rock 150-200 million years old; and 2) 82- to 85-million-year-old biotite monzogranite which weathers to potato-shaped large boulders.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
