Bighorn Plateau
Bighorn PlateauOriginal: available8 x 10 inchesTowards the end of the trail, moving ever closer to Mount Whitney ( background, on the left), I have to stop at this spot along the trail every time.  Turning back you can see how far you've come from Forester Pass and how much closer you are to reaching Mount Whitney.  This plateau is dotted with foxtail pines and late in the season dry grasses that really are as bright as the colors in the painting.  It is a magical place.
