Clothing and Weather

Weather in the Eastern Sierra is unpredictable. Expect cool/warm days and cold mornings and evenings.

Due to variable conditions, I recommend bringing multiple layers of non-cotton clothing, like Merino wool, fleece, or synthetic fibers. Specifically you should bring: 

  • A jacket and pants
  • A windproof rain jacket
  • Lighter layers, like a sun hoodie or long-sleeved sun shirt
  • Shorts for warm days
  • A wide-brim hat and sunglasses
  • Wool or synthetic socks
  • Gloves and a warm hat depending on the temperature
  • Sturdy footwear that you don’t mind getting dirty. Lightweight hiking boots or hiking shoes are recommended for most outings. 
  • A large water bottle and sunscreen
  • Flashlight or headlamp
  • Trekking poles

Shooting Conditions

Although we hope for clear skies, clouds can appear at any moment. There is a reason the PhotoPills motto is “Plan and Pray.” Or, as I always say: keep your expectations low and your hopes high.

Thanks for your order. Please wait a moment while we process your payment.
