Whitney Portal Road - Inyo National Forest, CA

After CES Las Vegas in January (photos here), I vacationed a bit. One of the places I went to is Alabama Hills in Lone Pine, CA (photos here) followed by Inyo National Forest. I visited the area January 17th, 2018 and took many photos. The photos in this blog post are from Whitney Portal Road in Inyo National Forest in California. The cellphone photos I shot can be viewed here.

Warning: I did go past a road closure to get some of the photos below. I do not support or recommend going past road closures. You do so at your own risk. When I drove up the road, I saw sand and rocks on the ground from slides. This can affect tire traction on cars, possibly trap you, or worse! The roads are closed for a reason. I took the risk going up there for photography (and I saw a couple other cars do the same). I'm not here to recommend doing this. Doing so is extremely dangerous and may lead to loss of life. Don't say you didn't get warned.
