HIGH SIERRA ESCAPE
Gaze in wonder at
Yosemite's thunderous
waterfalls, soaring granite
cliff s, and titanic sequoias
on this jaw-dropping drive.
Then cross the Sierra
Nevada's crest to discover
strangely beautiful tufa
formations and a wealth of
alpine lakes and peaks.
FRESNO
Kick things off at this
gateway to the Sierra.
Explore the fl ourishing
art scene-survey Fulton
Street's murals and the
Fresno Art Museum's
collections. Attend a
concert at the 1928
Warnors Theatre, or see
the Fresno Philharmonic
perform. Dip into farm-tofork
culture at Heirloom.

the sun-kissed foothills.

to pine-studded Bass Lake.
Rent a kayak, paddle to the
rope swing, and plunge into
crystal-clear waters. Zip
back to town for brick-oven
pizza and IPAs at South
Gate Brewing Company.
FISH CAMP
Ease into the pines as
you zigzag north on Hwy.
41's curves. Stop to board
the Yosemite Mountain
Sugar Pine Railroad and
chug through conifer-clad
woods, then savor sweet
dreams at Tenaya Lodge.
YOSEMITE
NATIONAL PARK
You'll need at least two
days to revel in Yosemite's
mind-boggling scenery.
Start with a walk among
the Mariposa Grove's giant
sequoias. Steer your car
north through dense forest
to Tunnel View's dazzling
vista of domes, waterfalls,
and pinnacles. In Yosemite
Valley, picnic by the Merced
River at Sentinel Beach.
Keep pushing east on Hwy.
120 toward Tuolumne
Meadows' wildfl owers, but
be sure to stop for a swim
in blue Tenaya Lake.
LEE VINING
The most thrilling
stint comes next-a
precipitous 3,000-foot
descent over Tioga Pass.
Waiting at the bottom of
this spine-tingling drive
is U.S. 395, the village
of Lee Vining, and the
700,000-year-old Mono
Lake. Walk the shoreline
trail from the Old Marina
site past otherworldly
tufa formations. Before
departing town, score fi sh
tacos at Whoa Nellie Deli.
JUNE LAKE
Only 15 minutes south,
detour for a drive around
the June Lake Loop-you'll
see four alpine lakes and
uncountable summits from
your windshield. To get
closer to the beauty, hike
to the aspen-lined Parker
Lake. Refuel with cheesy
goodness at June Pie Pizza.
MAMMOTH LAKES
Swing south on U.S. 395
for another 20 miles
to the Eastern Sierra's
largest resort town. Head
to Mammoth Mountain to
bike on zippy single-track.
Ride the shuttle bus to
Devils Postpile National
Monument to marvel
at an astounding lavacolumn
formation and
shimmering Rainbow Falls.
Celebrate your adventures
with cocktails at Shelter
Distilling, pho at Noodle-Ly,
and some rest at the Westin
Monache Resort.
