Eastern Sierra

Land of Contrasts, Land of Extremes. The Eastern Sierra region of California is at once little known and widely loved. Geographically separated from populated California, two main influences create a distinctly wild and scenic character. The Sierra Nevada Range is the longest, highest and most diverse mountain range in the continental U.S. In the High Sierra, it is a mere 80 miles from the highest peak, Mt. Whitney 14,494 ft, to the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere, Badwater Basin, Death Valley National Park 282 ft below sea level.
