…that’s right folks; the Eastern Sierra just ranked #6 on Lonely Planet’s top 10 US travel destinations for 2013!!!
Here you can read the article in full, but in summary, the author references our fantastic proximity to Yosemite National park, the ghost town of Bodie, Mono Lake, and Devils Postpile National Monument. Thanks Lonely Planet!!!
But what I really love is that they made mention of the local and tourist favorite, the Whoa Nellie Deli located at the Mobile gas station in Lee Vining. If you’ve never checked this place out (especially mid-summer when they are rocking), you’ve gotta experience this great atmosphere and tasty cuisine while sitting inside our outside of a gas station market just miles away from Yosemite’s east entrance.
Now what the author neglected to mention was my favorite in the Eastern Sierra: The town of Mammoth Lakes and Mammoth Mountain Ski Area…duhhhh! But probably better off that they left out this, as we don’t want the whole world showing up here now, do we?
