We love to stop in Lone Pine and eat at the Mt. Whitney Restaurant. It is right at the base of the Mt. Whitney portal road and the coffee is hot, the food is great, and it is a welcome break from our travels. We stopped there after leaving Bishop Sunday morning. We didn't drive up the portal road, which we had done earlier in our trip. Instead, we found a pasture of mules and horses to investigate! Here are some pics from Lone Pine.
