Photographer's Note

California's Sierra Nevada mountain range is almost 400 miles long, running mainly south to north. It has 400 peaks over 12,000 feet above sea level. The west side of the range has a gradual slope and captures the prevailing Pacific storms, resulting in dense green forests. The east side has a severe slope and most of the Pacific moisture already dropped on the west side.
The Eastern Sierra Nevada also has less human population.

Highway 395 parallels the Eastern Sierra, making for one of the great scenic highways in the West. My favorite 'base camps', small towns with hotels and restaurants along the 395 corridor are: Lone Pine, Bishop, Mammoth Lakes, and June Lake.
