Trona and Lone Pine

We recently made two trips, a week apart, to Lone Pine. The route is north for us up the 395 to Trona then on to Lone Pine near Mt. Whitney.


Trona Pinnacles





Mt Whitney from Lone Pine Campground



Tuttle Creek - Exposed and Windy! We moved to Lone Pine Campground.




Alabama Hills, where many movies have been filmed.




South of Whitney a few canyons, off the paved roads



Dinner is served



After it's cleaned



Sierra's from the Alabama Hills

Nice! I hiked / back packed Mt. Whitney in the late 70's. Signed my name in the book at the top, and threw up.

Awesome! We spoke to several people coming off the trail. They had only gone 5 miles, about halfway to Whitney and come upon a snowfield. It was too dangerous to continue and they came back. There has already been 3 deaths this year of hikers attempting to summit.

It's a 10 mile hike to the summit, 20 miles round trip.

My hat's off to you or anyone else who's done it!

Great looking trip and wonderful scenery! My family is backpacking from that side of the Sierra's this summer, but unfortunately I won't be able to make it this time

Usually we head to the west side of the Sierra's but there was too much snow where we normally go, so we decided on the east side. Fishing is much better on the east side.

Where are they packing? I tend to prefer the June lake or Bishop area's.

Yes, Try Cleghorn off the I-15 in the Cajon pass. There is a main trail that heads to Silverwood lake. Mostly easy with off-shoots that will range in difficulty.

There may also be some trails near Saddleback or off Ortega hwy, but I haven't been there.

Calico is a lot of fun but can get very difficult. Be sure to bring tools and recovery gear and go with a friend if you head out there. It's also getting a little hot to hit the Mojave desert.

Post a pic of your rig!
