Use the town as a base to explore the vivid fall color of the Eastern Sierra and the wealth of hot springs stretching between
it and Mammoth Lakes, 60 miles south. Try this therapeutic formula for a long weekend: Drive, hike, see fall color, and do
some soaking on the way to Mammoth Lakes. Don’t miss the Travertine Hot Springs, where the waters average 105° and views of
the Sawtooths are yours to savor, or Conway summit (south of Bridgeport on U.S. 395) for a sweeping, tree-dotted vista of
where the Great Basin meets the High Sierra.
