A beautiful spring day made for the best of conditions to take in the natural beauty of this often bypassed national treasure.

The first of two guided hikes planned for this spring, it proved to be an excellent educational opportunity as well as good exercise for the participants. If getting to see these locations in person interests you, the next hike is scheduled for Saturday March 20th, startingat10:00am,alabama_hillsl-3meeting at the corner of Whitney Portal Road and Movie Road, in the hills west of Lone Pine.
