I will be taking a series of multi-day backpacking trips this July in the Eastern Sierras as well as Yosemite and will be traveling up the 395, eventually coming into Yosemite from the east, so this question is specific to that general area. Due to extreme amounts of snow still in the high country, and high water levels from snowmelt...I *may* have to abort some of my planned excursions...leaving me with free time in this gorgeous part of the country. With that said, what are some things to see and do if I have to change my plans?
My primary interest with regards to this trip is photography (bakpacking being a means to that end), but other interests are hiking, local history, and anything active and outdoorsy. Also any interesting / picturesque towns to visit.
I have already looked into visiting some of the thermal springs in the area (for swimming), as well as Mono Lake and possibly Bodie Ghost town (although I have plans to visit Bodie later on in August anyway).
I would love any suggestions you might have!
