  • Forest located on the East face of the "High Sierra". Divided into four districts, all full of natural attractions, such as: Mount Whitney, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, Mono Lake and Devils Postpile.

  • It's hard to rate the entire National Forest at once, but my experiences in the eastern Sierra are always memorable. The transition from high desert to alpine peaks is breathtaking! My favorite destination is Mt Whitney, but I've only snagged the permits once. The hike was tough but well worth the effort. Not too many people can say they've summited the tallest mountain in the Continental USA!
  • One of my favorite places to be in all of California, the Inyo National Forest is an underdog in forest game, but has so much to offer. The peaks, lakes and wilderness are unlike any other place.
  • This is a beautiful valley! I had the opportunity to climb Mt. Whitney and it was spectacular! If you're ever in the area and want a good challenge, do the mountaineers route of Mt. Whitney.
  • The view from Mount Whitney at sunrise is one of the best I have ever seen
  • Inyo National Forest was beautiful! Stopped by on my way to Yosemite & was stunned! The scenery, the weather, everything was perfect!
