‘The mountains are calling and I must go.‘ – John Muir
We love hiking! When we feel that solitude and beauty of high mountain peaks and crystal clear lakes or listen to the music of the waves then everything seems to be right in this world.
That’s why California was our perfect place. When we think of it, our first thought is the ocean and our second is the Sierra Nevada. Everything else comes only after… 🙂
The Sierra Nevada mountain range is home to three amazing national parks and several wilderness areas. It’s also home to Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America and Mount Whitney (14505 ft / 4421 m), the highest peak in the contiguous United States.
Magnificent skyline, hundreds of crystal clear alpine lakes and creeks, breathtaking waterfalls, giant trees and spectacular granite peaks make it a place which will steal your heart at first sight.
We started this series to show you some of the most wonderful day hikes in the Sierra Nevada. In each new post we will share our experience about one of these hikes – our next post featuring Yosemite’s Waterfall Loop is coming soon!
For now, here’s a summary about them (in no particular order):
