I didn't know what I expected when I arrived at sofa springs. It's naturally carbonated drinkable water all over the ground. Animals love to swing by for a drink, so it's a good spot to watch.

Snowshoe to Cooney Lake

Yosemite / Virginia Lake Trailhead

When it's winter time, one of the best things you can do is experience the snow in the Eastern Sierra! If you've ever been hiking and/or backpacking in the Sierra, you know it's one of the most beaut.
