Mount Whitney (place)
Return to Mount Whitney (place)
The tallest mountain in the lower forty-eight. It is located in California on the southeast side of Kings Canyon National Park. Its height of 4418 meters (14,494 feet) is impressive, but is not really among the world’s great mountains. It does not really even compare with the top 10 mountains in Alaska, much less on the world stage. Though the east face is very shear, looks great. It is odd how the tallest mountains are rarely the ones that look really impressive.
