Here are some of the views we saw on June 22 2017 as we traveled down the 395 South between Carson Valley and Mammoth on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It was a stunning day with stunning views.

Great drive, great weather that day with stunning views of the mountains. I'm so glad we made the time to go.

I have wanted to go up to Bodie for decades, as much to see the dramatic views back to the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains, as to see the historic town itself. Here are some of the vistas we saw on the road up to the top of the Bodie hills, and some shots from around the town. Bodie itself sits at an elevation of 8,379 feet (2554m) with the surrounding summits being almost 10,000 feet. The dry terrain and lack of trees gives the perfect platform for viewing the higher Sierra Nevada Mountains to the west. In the distance are Eagle Peak, Twin Peaks, Mt. Dana etc., and beyond them the Yosemite National Park high country. The Bodie Hills are in both California and Nevada, but all of this area is in California.

Some of the stunning views on the 395 heading south of Lee Vining toward Mammoth and June Lake on June 22nd. It was great to be on this drive while there was still so much snow left in the mountains this year, nothing else like it.

On our drive down the 395 we took the time to drive up to Boadie Ghost town. the views across the valley to the Eastern Sierras were stunning, especially with this year's heavy snow pack. The mountains simply glowed from that height. We're at about 8,000 foot in the Bodie Hills here looking back at the larger and taller Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Another pretty stop on the side of the road along the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains driving south on the 395 on June 22nd. Still so much snow on the mountains and the rivers and creeks are very full. Its good to see and long overdue.

After visiting family near Reno, Nevada,we drove down the 395 from Carson Valley to Mammoth on June 22 2017 before heading home. This is a stop just south of Bridgeport, CA. So much snow and water in the Sierras, just beautiful.
