The whole eastern slope from Markleeville all the way down to Bishop -- if you hike, mountain bike, or fish, it's heaven. Sonora Pass, Twin Lakes, Green Lake, Virginia Lakes, Tioga Pass, June, Mammoth, Bishop Creek -- a series of deep canyons running eastward from the crest down toward the high desert. The trailheads are all at high altitude, making it easy to get into the alpine zone. Waterfalls, streams, wildflowers, views that run for 200 miles in every direction.
World class scenery, right nearby! (Near you. For us, it is a long drive!)
