The Road Less Traveled

Photos by Mel Sweet and Devin Hess / Unbound Exposure - As I viewed the sun rising over Owens Valley for the first time, I knew I would never be the same. The Eastern Sierras captured my heart as they have so many before. Devin and I started out in the classics climbing Owens River Gorge and the Buttermilks. From the Alabama Hills to the Druid Stones, climbing gear routes in the Buttermilks to a quiet day in the Happys, from exhausting your body to recovering in hot springs, the Eastern Sierras have so much more to offer for those who are willing to wander off course.
