I've been exploring the Eastern Sierra for many years - some of my life's most memorable moments happened in these parts. I was involved in the desert wilderness movement in the 1990's and in the early 2000's I traversed the length of the Inyo Mountains as a fundraiser for the hospital in Lone Pine. I also wrote a cover story in LA Weekly about an unsolved mystery in Saline Valley.
