Lonely Planet Names the Eastern Sierra a Top 10 U.S. Destination for 2013

Three - Dawn Alpenglow Over Mt. Dana from Navy Beach

The secret is out!  Lonely Planet named my home, the Eastern Sierra region, as one of their top 10 U.S. travel destinations for 2013:

"This year, hop past Yosemite – just beyond lies the secret California dream: the Eastern Sierra, the overlooked flank of the Sierra Nevada range, with other-worldly natural attractions and surprises (Basque culture?), not to mention far fewer visitors."

Among other sights, they recommend visiting Mono Lake, the ghost town of Bodie State Historic Park, and Devil's Postpile National Monument.  Of course we're arranging special privileges like night access to Bodie, and many other local secrets we can show you... once I have permit confirmations from the 6-7 state and federal agencies I work with for authorization to run photo workshops around here.

Lori Hibbett and I are working on a schedule for 5 different flavors of Eastern Sierra workshops, two for the High Sierra, 2 for Death Valley, and several for Yosemite National Park.  Contact me for further details.
