One of the magazines that I read most is Outside Magazine. I do most magazine reading at the gym and I judge the magazines by which ones have articles that I become so engrossed in that I forget that I’ve been riding the stationary bike. The recent features in Outside Magazine have kept me peddling.
I saw a link to this post on the Outside Magazine Facebook page earlier today about Mt. Whitney and the government shutdown. The post links the the Whitney Portal Store which is located next to the Mt. Whitney trail head. While the Whitney Portal Store website isn’t anything fancy it does feature a spectacular webcam with a live view of Mt. Whitney. It is worth a click over to whitneyportalstore.com (but during daylight hours) to see the live views.
You can read all about the webcam and view archived photos from the past 5 years. Here is a photo from Friday:
Even if you aren’t in California, you can still shop from the Whitney Portal Store, check out their online shop here.
If you are looking to read more about Mt. Whitney check out the blog Mt. Whitney Quest. The author, Jerry DeCapua is an avid hiker and has lectured on Mt. Whitney for the REI Outdoor School (he is also a voice talent – check out his IMDB page here).
