Near The Intersection Of God And The Eastern Sierras
Looking south from Hwy 168 toward the Eastern Sierras, September 20th, 2012. Yes, over saturated, but I am a sucker for blues and gold.
The Eastern Sierra is the remote east side of the Sierra Nevada region of California. The desert-like yearly rainfalls compete with small streams draining down from the snow-covered mountains to create a barren land with regions of verdant green.
The largest industry in the Eastern Sierra is tourism. Lodging and campsites are plentiful. Activities that appeal to the traveler are various and plentiful.
Owens Valley. The southern portion of the Eastern Sierra is a narrow flat valley extending 125 mi (200 km) from Owens Lake north to the Owens Gorge. The vast majority of the Owens Valley is private property owned by the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The Owens Valley is flanked by spectacular mountain ranges rising abruptly from the valley floor -- to the west the High Sierra, and to the east the Inyo and White mountain ranges. Nearly all lands above the valley floor are owned by federal agencies.
