Great place to view some wonderful photographs of the Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains and surrounding areas. Elegant gallery - it was once a bank! Friendly, knowledgable staff.

If you're interested in Galen Rowell and his photographic work this is worth a visit. Nice displays with many of his noteworthy prints in large format adorn the walls.

We are fans of Galen Rowell's work and have wanted to stop here for years. We were not disappointed. Picked up beautiful large framed print for our home. Service was exceptional.
