Tremendous mountain-shaping forces of geologic uplifting, glaciation, and volcanic activity have joined powers in the Eastern Sierra Nevada to build and carve a range unparalleled in its picturesque majesty. These mountains occupy some of the largest roadless areas in the lower forty-eight states and contain some of the grandest scenery in the West. John Muir referred to the Sierra Nevada as, above all other mountains, the "Range of Light."
Photographer Dennis Flaherty's collection of color images depicting Mt. Whitney, the Owens Valley, Mammoth Lakes, Mono Lake, and the mountains, canyons, and vistas in between is an ideal gift for hikers, climbers, and everyone who is drawn to the landscape east of the Sierra Nevada.
