Inyo

This little lake was named after escapees from a Nevada jail that took on the law in a shootout during the late 1800's. This place is only a few miles off of the infamous Eastern Sierra Highway 395. The ancient granite rock towering above is some of the most interesting & oldest in the Sierra range. Backpackers & Fishermen will love the immediate access to the John Muir Wilderness areas with all the alpine lakes that dot this majestic mountain range. The one & only resort offers cabins & general store, as well as horse & boat rentals.
