Mt. Whitney here we come!

So we were successful in the Mt. Whitney lottery!  We were given the dates of September 28-29 for our summit bid.  Now all we have to secure the days off with work and step up our training hikes.  Our last trip to Mt. Wilson was cancelled due to a back injury but Danny and Jack were able to do a hike in Laguna Canyon.  We will be doing the Wilson hike sometime in the next few weeks.  Report and photos to follow so stay posted
