The photographer: Patrick "Pat" McCartney of Truckee
Behind the lens: Highway 395 down eastern Sierra is my favorite drive, and I try to take at least one side trip every time. I took this shot of Mount Whitney swaddled in clouds and the Alabama Hills after a fall storm dusted the high country. The vantage point is from Highway 136 heading east from Lone Pine. As Californians know, the tallest peak in the Lower 48 is the lower-appearing, serrated peak on the mid-right.
