During summer, motorists usually find it a cool fact that this is the highest driveable location in the Mammoth Falls region. It’s only when they arrive that they find an even cooler sight - the dramatic jagged edges of the Ritter Range Minarets of Sierra Nevada thrusting into the sky. The structures look alien, cruel and otherworldly. The two highest peak seen, Mount Ritter and Banner Peak, are 4,010 meters and 3,945 meters respectively. Look around, and you will also see the elegant sweep of the back of Mammoth Mountain. Apparently, the best time to visit this area is at sunset, when the photographs are unbeatable. During winter, you can also trek to the Vista on snowshoes.
