Driving to the Whitney Portal out of Lone Pine to hike up Thor Peak. The hike will start on the main Whitney Trail until I reach the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek, then following the creek trail to Lower Boy Scout Lake then up to Thor Peak.
This is where the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek crosses the trail. A trail comes off the main trail here and heads up the North Fork. This is the trail to the Whitney Mountaineer's Route, it's also the route I'll take to Thor Peak.
Looking up the canyon from the lake. That would be the way to Whitney's mountaineer's route. There is a lot of water flowing here but it's hard to see in this pic. On my way out there was more than twice as much flow.
