Mount Whitney: A dad-daughter highlight

A few years ago, as he sensed the inevitable changes ahead, Edwyn Hill of Spokane planned a challenging outdoor adventure with his oldest daughter, Whitney. He wanted to end the teenage chapter in her upbringing with an exclamation point before she moved on to college. Outdoors editor Rich Landers tagged along with them to California as the Hills climbed Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the lower 48 states. The trek was a high point in the Hills’ relationship. Landers documents how the effort prepared Wyn for an even bigger transition that transpired five years later.
