The "Pink Postpile" - Devil's Postpile was inaccessible due to snow, so we found this in the Fish Slough Volcanic Tablelands instead. It was fantastic!
An impressive balancing erratic at June Lake. Naturally this calls for tagging - not by our group of course.
Paper cranes at Manzanar cemetary.
Typical menu at Manzanar Internment Camp. The thing that puzzles me is the 4oz of curry powder available.
Heart-shaped arch at Alabama Hills, inclement weather in background.
Inclement weather + slow driver + two wheel drive van = getting stuck in a ridiculously small snow pile. *sigh*
Ascending the 680ft high Eureka Dunes, they too "sing", and are the highest in California and rivaling for the highest in the USA.
The group at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest - trees over 4000 years old!
The Chaflant Group Petroglyphs (Fish Slough area), some of the largest (5ft diameter) petroglyphs around.
Two little brine shrimp from Mono Lake.
Why is this whole sign in quotes? (Mammoth Geothermal)
Foxy Brown and Troy Pliocene on the Eureka Dunes. These two were trip mascots; unfortunately Foxy Brown escaped at the ammonite site in Union Wash and was never seen again.
It's amazing how many people go in anyway, and end up receiving the $175 ticket. (Hot Creek Geologic Area)
And of course several other places were visited too - but these constitute my favourite images of the trip.
