A little cloud cover to help beat the heat is not only enjoyable for playing outdoors... it also makes for gorgeous pictures!

If you make it past #LakeSabrina, the only thing left to do it keep going till you reach Blue Lake. You won't be sorry you kept #hiking... we promise! @visitbishop ...

Nothing much to see here. 😉 Just another gorgeous summer day in #Yosemite. Except you get to see it twice.

Summer days are fun in #yosemite... but so are the nights! Don't go to bed too early. You'll miss the show! ✨

We'll get right to the point... #summertime ☀️ is awesome in the High Sierra and we wouldn't want to be anywhere else. What's your favorite summer thing to to in the #CAHighSierra?

Roads. Gravel. Mountains. We got it all in the High Sierra! What's your favorite way to #bike?

📸 @sidetrckd; Regram @visitbishop

Ancient and magnificent. Mother Nature definitely knows how to age gracefully.

On a ☀️ hot summer's day, a few clouds are a welcome sight. It's the perfect backdrop for a mid-afternoon adventure.

Regram @visitjunelakeloop

Blue skies. Waterfalls. Wildflowers. That's a complete package of #awesomeness.

What's been your 🥾 favorite #hike this summer?

📸 @deadringerr; @explorer_mauri; Regram @visitbishop

A beautiful lake on a beautiful summer afternoon is a sweet way to spend a High Sierra day.

📸 @visitalpinechamber

Things are looking up! Keep #climbing till you can't climb anymore... and then find another mountain to climb. We have lots to choose from in the High Sierra.
