Owens Valley, Northeastern California

Post by Gowergulch42 » Thu Sep 29, 2016 5:06 pm

I recently spent a week in Owens Valley followed by a lengthy drive up 395 to Alturas and then to Bend and Portland. Visited a lot of places on the way, don't really feel like writing it all down yet, but I will share TRs when I get the chance. Here's the first one, from Lava Beds National Monument:

Thanks for sharing. I visited Lava Beds nearly 14 years ago, after a snow storm. Looks like not much has changed (which is a good thing):

Lava Beds NM is one of the places I've been wanting to visit soon, so I very much enjoyed your report. I'm really looking forward to reading your other reports when you have time to write them!

What a sad commentary on America that our national treasures must be protected by a barbed wire fence.

The fence was built in 1933 when the CCC was developing the area. It has been maintained since then, obviously.

ALSO: Here is my preliminary report on Lava Beds National Monument. It's meager now, but as I visit again it will grow substantially.

I think it is worth saying again, your post and website are top notch. I hope going forward after school you will get an opportunity to share with a wider audience and make a living with your information.
