White Mountain with its road and shack on top is very recognizable when it's clear of clouds. From Tehachapi it's 500k O&R.

Mt Emerson Horseshoe Switchbacks Approaching the northernmost turnpoint for a 300k from Tehachapi
Sierra view of Mt Emerson, Humpheys, and the mighty Mt Tom from about 15,000ft. Most pilots fly the Whites to the east for distance but who can say the upper Sierra is not for beauty?
