Eastern Sierra of California Photos

Here are a few photos from the Eastern Sierra of California, one of my favorite places on earth.

Photos from my family vacation in the Mammoth Lakes area of California, August 2012:

My son, Nathan, as we approach the crest and the scrambling/climbing part of an off-trail hike to the top of Mammoth Crest.
One of my greatest rewards in hiking is spending time with my kids. Here, Nathan and I celebrate our success at reaching the top of the Mammoth Crest.

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.
My daughter and I in Little Lakes Valley, near Rock Creek.
