Little Lake Ranch in the Eastern Sierra

Eastern Sierra Nevada This area has the greatest diversity of landscape, flora and fauna I have ever seen: huge mountains and open plains, gushing streams and stunning lakes, ancient bristlecone pines and young trees, verdant valleys and scrub desert; volcanic hot springs and icy snowfields. And the towns of Lone Pine, Lee Vining and Bishop are small, quaint and full of character. Info: -- Badri Ananth, Santa Barbara
