Visiting California's High Sierras

California’s Sierra Nevada region celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant, the original park bill preserving the land that is now Yosemite National Park. The Range of Light Film Festival takes place at the Yosemite Valley Visitors Center February 27th through March 2nd. The 2014 theme is 150 Years of Yosemite, honoring the park’s anniversary with film, music, and storytelling. Events continue through October 2014.

Mammoth Lakes, on the east side of the Sierra, is the destination for winter fun. Located five miles east of Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Mammoth Lake is a premier destination for winter skiing and snowboarding. Take a winter challenge at the Triple Threat Winter Triathlon along June Lake Loop on March 1st. The 2014 winter triathlon includes snowshoe, shooting, and cross-country skiing.

Test your training at the 2014 Mammoth Challenge Triathlon, with the events held at 7,000 feet elevation. The triathlon is August 9th, with events starting with swim courses at the Whitmore Pool, six miles south of Mammoth Lakes. The 2014 Mammoth Mud Run is August 23rd, featuring a 5K course of obstacles and mud pits.

Beat the intense summer heat of Death Valley National Park, with a spring visit to the area. The Eastern Sierra’s Ridgecrest is a full-service gateway community to Death Valley. Located at the south end of Naval Air Warfare Center–China Lake, Ridgecrest hosts the 2014 Ridgecrest Desert Wildflower Festival in April – an ideal time to visit and enjoy delightful spring weather.

The communities of Porterville and Exeter, on the west of the Sierra Nevada are gateway communities to Sequoia National Park. Before summer visitors flock to the park to enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and cooler weather, spring brings local festivals and fun. The 2014 Porterville Iris Festival is April 26th featuring fun and entertainment in downtown Porterville and tours of Sutton’s Iris Gardens. Visit Exeter on May 4th for Brewfest, presented by Exeter Lions Club at the Exeter Veteran’s Memorial Building.
