Many of you know Denise. She and her husband Michael (and three kiddos) were former neighbors and housemates in years past. Michael is a photographer, and they went over to document the Whitney. You can find some of Denise's thoughts about the Whitney here.
In this picture, Denise is being very generous and making a contribution to my Whitney fundraising effort (by the way, I raised just over $7,000 for this ride!!). I took another picture that she liked better, but she has such a cheerful look on her face in this image. After all, God loves a cheerful giver.
Here's a second photo that I liked---the soft sunset over the Alabama Hills, looking towards the Sierra. That's Whitney, smack dab in the middle with a hint of snow on the right side. Lone Pine Peak is in the forefront on the left side, and looks bigger since it is much closer than Whitney.
