Mount Whitney and Inyo National forest, California

While Mount Whitney is the highest peak in California and the USA, standing at 4,417m. However this is not the only attraction within this national forest. Covering an area of 3125 square miles and with about 4 million visitors each year, it is a popular destination.

While wolves and other apex predators are yet to return, there is still a variety of interesting mammals to look out for, including Mountain Lions, coyotes, black bears, mule deer, striped skunks and a whole range of other small mammals.
