The Minarets form part of California’s Ritter Range—intertwined with, but separate from, the nearby Sierra crest. I first visited this area, near Devils Postpile National Monument, in 1959. At that time my friend Howard and I camped at the Minaret Falls Campground and hiked up to Minaret Lake.
I’ve taken a number of photos of the Minarets from Minaret Outlook, near the Mammoth Mountain ski area. I’ve even been able to sell some!
