Sierra Nevada is a 400 miles long mountain range that runs from Northern California to the Central Valley of California and is home to 3 spectacular national parks; Yosemite, Sequoia, and Kings Canyon. Whether you live in San Francisco or Los Angeles, the Sierras can be reached within a few hours drive. This place is heaven to outdoor enthusiasts. Most people visit the sierras once, many people visit annually, and the spectacular few get to travel deep in the backcountry and enjoy the simplicity of life on trail for weeks or months at a time. Whether you just drive through the Tioga Pass and look at Yosemite Valley from your car or finished the entire John Muir Trail, you probably can’t disagree with me that the sierras is truly a sanctuary. I spent 6 weekends in the sierras this past summer of 2013, and It wasn’t nearly enough. I love this place. I love being there. If you’ve never been to the sierras, here are 10 reasons why you need to plan your next vacation there.
serious hike or casual walk, there’s a trail for everyone
