⛔️ As always, remember to practice all the leave no trace principles! This includes: packing out EVERYTHING; respecting all wildlife and signage; following all 🔥regulations + much more!!! ⛔️
There are SO many INCREDIBLE places to explore on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevadas in California… but, these are definitely some of my favorites!
1️⃣ Brees Lookout – one of the most stellar views and super easy to get to for sunrise! It’s part of the Hot Creek Geological Site (the entire area is fire 🔥 😉)
2️⃣ Crab Cooker Hot Springs (or Hill Top Hot Springs, Wild Willy’s Hot Springs – there’s SO many natural hot springs to soak in here)!! Just type “hot springs” into Google maps and a ton will show up!
3️⃣ Mono Lake – see one of the oldest and otherworldly lakes in the country! Its tufa towers are so cool and alien-like! 👽
4️⃣ Bodie State Historic Park – for me, the drive to this abandoned mining town is one of the bests! Unnmatched scenery (and if you’re lucky, you’ll get a cloud inversion like we did)!! ☁️
5️⃣ Alabama Hills – I’m obsessed with this place! See insane boulders / rock formations (like Mobius Arch) stretched out beneath the tallest mountain in the lower 48 states: Mt. Whitney!
6️⃣ Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest – walk among the OLDEST trees in the world via Methuselah trail! Then, afterwards, swing by Sierra View Overlook for sweeping, panoramic views!
Not shown in reel but absolutely worth exploring here are…
✨Devil’s Postpile National Monument
✨Crowley Lake Stone Columns
+ many more!
