(PDF with color photos)

Photograph America Newsletter on East of the Sierra, California
 
Some of the most dramatic landscapes in the Western United States lie on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Range. The highest peaks in America rise slowly from the Central Valley of California for a hundred miles and then drop suddenly ten thousand feet to the edge of the Great Basin and the Mojave Deserts. This is a land of extreme contrasts. The highest and lowest points in the Lower 48, and extreme ranges in weather and geology, make the panoramic landscapes along the eastern edge of California a perfect destination for any photographer in any season. Photograph the west's best ghost town, the strange tufa towers on Mono Lake, and the bristlecone pines along the high ridges of the White Mountains along the east side of the California's Sierra Nevada Range. This newsletter goes into detail about shooting autumn color in the best aspen groves and offers help getting some great images in the old ghost town of Bodie--best seasons and best times of the day. Here are directions to Mono Lake's tufa towers and the strange sand towers. Included are directions to several forests of ancient, twisted bristlecone pines at 11,000 feet in the White Mountains, a few miles south.
