Always beautiful and rugged. The road to Whitney portal and easy hike around pound and waterfall with pancakes afterwards. Also dont miss horseshoe meadow road for amazing view and alpine experience. Or movie road before second crossing of line pine creek all clearly marked

We have fished there in the past and did quite well. Not sure lately how it's been, but just wandering along the road and looking at the water is very relaxing. Note: take a dip net if you fish. Lost a good one that way.

Take your kid fishing! Stocked all the time with nice sized fish. The stream is easy to get to right outside of Lone Pines!

Surprising source of water in the desert. There are several small to medium waterfalls along the stream. I saw people fishing, but I didn't see any fish. Had some fairly good Fall colors.
