The Sierra Nevada covers a huge geographical area. Dividing this into Southern and Northern regions is an attempt to create a more logical, manageable, and hopefully user-friendly structure.

For information about the Eastern Sierra (Bishop, Mammoth, etc), refer to the Sierra Eastside section of the site.
