We really were there. However we didn't get to experience the sheer delight of seeing California's official state fish - the golden trout.
We planned to start our hike tomorrow in the dark so we drove up to the Cottonwood Lakes trailhead the day before our hike to familiarize ourselves with the area.
We wholeheartedly agree

Warm-up hike on the 'original' Main Mount Whitney Trail (starts near the waterfall and joins the 'current' trail here at the sign)
Decided to scope out the Moutaineer's Route - this is where you leave the Main Trail
