Lee Vining

The under appreciated former mining town of Lee Vining lies along the eastern entrance into Yosemite National Park. While access is cut off in the winter months due to snow in the high Sierras, this is the leading launch point for fishing and backpacking into Mono Lake, June Lake, Grant Lake, and Mammoth Lakes.
