Most of the trail up to the North Fork Lone Pine creek sign is clear of snow.
The North Fork Lone Pine Creek. The North Fork trail is clear for a bit further but soon you get into significant snow.
The Ebersbacher Ledges look like they're mostly clear of snow. I didn't see anybody use them so I continued on up along the creek. The creek is getting hard to cross in a couple of places. I wish I had used the ledges.
Looking West from LBSL. Two climbers are on they're way up (or down).
Closer view of the North Fork Lone Pine Creek route. Much of the creek is covered by snow. (300mm Telephoto).
Another view of Mount Whitney from below the Portal.
There are two sections of the road that have quite a bit of rockfall that has slid off from the unstable slope to the right. It is still possible to drive through by weaving around the boulders. Snow is not an issue on the road until about a mile below
Some pretty large rocks on the road, but you can just squeeze through to the left.
There were about ten vehicles parked about a mile down from the Whitney trailhead.
Looking down the North Fork. Upper part of the E-Ledges are on the left.
Looking down at Lower Boy Scout Lake from below Thor Peak.
