The meadows here is beautiful beyond description. You have to be here personally to appreciate the calmness, the peace, the serenity and majesty of the place.

This is a very popular stop for most people. The meadows stretch for miles and you can wander to your hearts content. Follow the river for a while and sit quietly away from the crowds and get great views of the surrounding mountains, it really...More

What a beautiful place, we know that the view is seasonally dressed, and each season has its own ascetics. We now know what the meadows look like in September. The golden grass flows for miles to the mottled gray hills in the distance. Large groves...More

Had to go to Yosemite despite the heavy fires that closed the valley. No smoke at all there (unlike over Lake Tahoe...), just clear blue skies. A much underrated part of the park definitely worth a detour.

This was only 40 minutes from Mammoth Lakes. There are hikes and walks everywhere. It's difficult to keep your eye on the road with all the fantastic views.

I don't remember it being all that winding, but remember, you will on the Tioga Pass Road. That goes into the mountains. The speed limit is quite slow, so that might help a bit. As for the cabins, I cannot help you on... More
