EASTERN SIERRA DISCOVERY

EASTERN SIERRA DISCOVERY

EASTERN SIERRA DISCOVERY

 

Join us and discover the wonderland of the Eastern Sierra Nevada in California
EASTERN SIERRA DISCOVERY
August 21-28, 2022

We invite you to join us as we explore the stunning landscapes of the Eastern Sierra, from the Mt. Whitney Portal, to the 11,000 foot White Mountains and Mono Lake, the renowned Pleistocene lake at the foot of the Eastern Sierra.

From our bases in Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, California, we’ll also explore Devil’s Postpile, the Long Valley Caldera (California’s “hot spot”), and discover nearby cinder cones and volcanic fissures. We’ll then venture north along the foot of the Sierra to Mono Lake and California’s most famous ghost town, Bodie.

We will head up Tioga Pass to Tuolumne Meadows, the high country of Yosemite National Park, with grand views and granitic outcrops. Then return to the foot of the Sierra and visit lovely June Lake.

At the summit of the White Mountains, we’ll see the oldest tree on earth, the bristle cone pines, and have a picnic with a sweeping view of the eastern expanse of the High Sierra (breathtaking barely describes the view!). South of Bishop, we’ll also visit movie sets where Wild West movies were filmed. We’ll then venture up to the Mt. Whitney Portal to see the summit of the highest peak in the Continental United States at 14,505 feet.
