**drwls**, Sunday, September 30, 2007 at 11:48pmCompute the distance to the horizon from Mt. Whitney, using the formula they gave you. If it is closer than 135 miles, then points beyond it at sea level or below, such as Badwater (Death Valley) cannot be seen from there.

I get the horizon to be 147 miles away.
