Photos of One of the Most Beautiful Places on Earth September 4, 2012

In case you’re interested, I have just updated my collection of photos of the Eastern Sierra of California. This is one of the most beautiful places on earth, in my opinion. The new photos are from a recent family vacation to Mammoth Lakes and the surrounding area. You can find all sorts of great hikes in this area. Some are simple and easy, perfect for those who want a hour’s jaunt in the woods. Other hikes are much more demanding. The Eastern Sierra is also a paradise for those who love climbing unbelievable steep and difficult peaks. Not my cup of tea. I love a good, off-trail scramble, but don’t like to be in situations where ropes are required.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures. I’ve put one here just to entice you.

A view of Deer Lakes, nestled in a valley on top of the Mammoth Crest. In the background you can see many High Sierra peaks, most of which are in Yosemite National Park, I believe. At the bottom of this picture you can see my wife, daughter, and me as we begin scrambling up a steep, rocky slope.
