A couple waits for the sunrise on the summit of Mount Whitney

A couple bundles up and sits back to watch the sunrise over the mountains from the summit of Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contiguous United States. Its a bitter cold morning but the view is like nothing I've ever seen. Mountains for miles and miles stretched out in every direction, it was very tranquil.
