Last Sunday, 6.26.11, I visited the Mono Lake / Mammoth Mountain area. I’ve posted some of the photos taken during the drive on Fickr. Take a minute or two and check them out. The area you’re seeing is on the far east side of California around where highway 120 meets highway 395. The elevation ranges from nearly 10,000 – 7,000 feet. The eastern side of the Sierra’s is made up mostly of high elevation desert.
