Two Mules and a Motorist
A spin With a Span Along El Camino Sierra

Sierra Lake
The fishing was marvelous. I hated to leave that lake. Even now it gives me heartache to write about it.

Mono Lake
Watch the sun rise on Mono lake; it will not be difficult for you to realize why the Indians call it "Mono the Beautiful." In the sublimity of its utter desolation, it is the Dead Sea of the West.

buckboard
Scott drove up with a hang-dog look and a span of mules, two "desert birds" drawing a fine buckboard with camp equipment. He introduced me to Molly and Kitty and I climbed in.

El Camino Sierra
Why attempt to describe a lake in the Sierra! No lord of language could ever do full justice to the loveliness of such an enchanted spot. By mule and motor, the traveler along El Camino Sierra penetrates to these fastnesses of beauty - and trout.

The Pasear
This is the "Pasear," a little 1,500 mile stroll through Fairyland.

Elephant Rock
Elephant Rock, one of Nature's odd bits of statuary in the country of El Camino Sierra.

El Camino Sierra Route
The new route of El Camino Sierra will skirt the very base of the Sierra, on the eastern side where the mountains practically dispense with preliminary foothills.
