Sierra  Nevada  Mountain  Climbing

                            by Craig and Diane Adkins

 

The Sierra Nevada runs roughly N/NWest to S/SEast 
for about 400 miles in the central part of Eastern California.

   Mt. Whitney, which is the highest peak in the lower 49,
 is less than 80 miles from Badwater in Death Valley, 
the country's lowest point--282 feet below sea level.
