Mono Pass was a major trade route across the Sierra between the Miwok people on the west side and the Piutes on the east. It was also the site of the Golden Crown Mine active in the early 1880s. Some of the structures built during that time are still standing. The setting is incomparable: a beautiful meadow at the eastern crest of the Sierra containing lakes of the most vivid blue ringed by the warm-red rocks of Mount Lewis and Mount Gibbs.
