Along the road between Grandview Campground and the Shulman Grove of Bristlecone Pines in the White Mountains, is a pullout called “Sierra View” (map). From here, on a reasonably clear day, you can look across the Owens Valley and see up to 130 miles of peaks along the crest of the Sierra Nevada, from Olancha Peak (in the south) to Mt. Dana (to the north). It’s a popular place for panoramic picture-taking, and for checking out your favorite peaks and glaciers with binoculars. Hear are a few shots from Sierra View and other nearby locations. Peak names added with a little help from Google Earth.
