Few places in the world have a richer mix of natural beauty, history, and arts and culture than the Sierras. Stretching nearly 400 miles from Bakersfield on up to California’s northernmost borders, the Sierras boast natural wonders like Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks, music and art festivals like the High Sierra Music Festival and the Sierra Nevada Arts and Crafts Festival, and tourist draws as diverse as wine tastings in the Shenandoah Valley and skiing the High Sierras.
And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, there’s always Lake Tahoe, Death Valley, Kings Canyon National Park, Mono Lake, and hitting the casinos in Reno. The Sierras truly have a little something for everybody. Whether you’re looking to make the Sierras home, are just passing through, or are planning your next vacation, here’s a comprehensive guide to the Sierra Nevada, and a celebration of the rich Sierra heritage.
To be able to live and work in this area is a blessing. It is not easy, with just incredible and storied amounts of snow, the view of the deep blue of Lake Tahoe that never gets old. Far enough away from big cities that we still feel small, but close enough to be accessible by many. If you look on the map, nearly anywhere in the world, you won’t find a place nor a culture quite like this that is snuggled amidst some of the most sought after places to be in the entire world.
Welcome to our Sierras.
