Experience a Quintessential Adventure in CaliforniaMay 15 2020 Journal
Mount Whitney is the highest peak, at 14505 feet (4421metres), not only in the Sierra Nevada but also in the contiguous United States. For a climber of average ability, the ascent will take about 7 to 8 hours and the descent approximately 3 hours; so, to complete the climb in one day, a very early start, before sunrise, is necessary.
An ideal place for a family visit. Muir Woods National Monument is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, north of San Francisco. It is known for its towering Redwood trees. Trails wind among the trees to Cathedral Grove and Bohemian Grove and along Redwood Creek. The Ben Johnson and Dipsea trails climb a hillside where there are good views of the treetops, the Pacific Ocean and Mount Tamalpais in adjacent Mount Tamalpais State Park.
