Just a quick note - I've corrected an error that was pointed out to me by a friend. I've made this correction -
"The White Mountains hemmed us in on the east with White Mountain Peak's profile fading last into the night. White Mountain is the highest peak in the Great Basin and the third highest in California. A list of California's highest can be found here - List of Major 3000 meter peaks in California."
My friend also mentioned speculation - unconfirmed but possible - that with the continued uplift of the Whites and with modern accurate measurements now possible - that White Mountain could be the highest peak in the contiguous United States. The Lone Pine lobby is hard at work covering up that information.
