WE DROVE “MOVIE ROAD” AND MARVLED AT THE ROCK FORMATIONS. A WORTHY OPPONENT OF THE ROCKS IN JOSHUA TREE. AND WE SPOTTED SEVERAL ARCHES!
I like this photo because it is ominous. That cow skull was probably left to be scorched by the sun. Note the Sierras in the background. Here it was, springtime (May) and the snowpack was practically nil. What will this area be like mid summer or Fall? The lack of water, as you will see shortly, is of great concern!
A trek up to Whitney Portals proves the point. The pond was shallow. We did get a few trout.
And across the pond is the camp store which makes the best burgers and fries!
How sad! Lake Sabrina, about thirty miles out of Bishop. It is no longer a lake but a string of ponds. Good fishing! The poor fish are captured into little lakes so easier to catch. Here the boats line up on shore.
BELOW ARE PETROGLYPHS AT FISH SLOUGH.
Fish Slough Petroglyph Panel, Bishop, California
Fish Slough Petroglyph panel and the Bishop Petroglyph driving loop are located just north of the town of Bishop, California in the northern end of the Owens valley.
The petroglyphs are thought to be between about 1000 and 8,800 years old, and possibly made by the ancestors of the native Paiute-Shoshone people who still inhabit the valley. The style of the petroglyphs is classified as Great Basin Curvilinear
JUNE LAKE LOOP! We camped at Silverlake in the primitive campground – well, not so primitive – it had showers! But it is right on the lake. Across the road is the RV park but we decided we didn’t need hookups. Our waterfall view was awesome.
MR TIKI HAD A GREAT TIME!
