For the past seven days, we took you on a fall road trip through the Eastern Sierra of California and Nevada. We went behind the scenes of our September issue's cover story, "The Road to Gold," with bonus photographs and videos. 

Follow along and use our daily itinerary to plan your own trip up quiet, gorgeous U.S. Highway 395. See days 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

Owens Valley

See the Owens Valley, L.A.’s famous water source, like you haven’t before: from the air. Watch as our writer and a paragliding pro take on the valley’s legendary thermals, which USPHA Editor Nick Greece writes “can send you into orbit at speeds that will turn your knuckles white.”



Thank you for joining us on this journey; we can’t wait to hear about your trip down U.S. Highway 395!
