Mammoth Lakes Travel
California mountains

Welcome to California's High Sierra mountains, the precious gem of US National Parks and mountain ranges. Formed by thousands of years of glacial action, the stunning mountains offer different experiences, depending on which portion of the mountains you visit. Ranging from mountains that surround a natural Lake Tahoe that features skiing and casinos on the Stateline city of Nevada, to beautiful Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park, Mammoth Lakes, and Squaw Valley, mountain vacations are a breath of fresh air. If you plan on visiting, one of the best destinations is the beloved Yosemite National Park. Ansel Adams, famed photographer, painted a brush stroke of black and white zone system images that pay tribute to this destination.

Mountain getaways in California offer four seasons experiences. Fall foliage is stunning, fishing, kayaking and skiing are all superb, and springtime waterfalls and wildflowers in bloom make the Calif. mountains the perfect anytime vacation. In the winter, some of the roads are narrow and snowy, and may be closed. Be sure to check before you go so that you don't have a disappointment if you can't get to your favorite mountain.
