Owens Valley

Owens Valley, CA

There used to be a lake in Owens Valley.  It was drained to feed Los Angeles' thirst.  It's still an impressive place.  The Sierra Nevada mountain range rises up as a ten thousand foot tall granite wall from the valley floor.  The range extends roughly forty miles to the South and one hundred fifty miles to the North.  Even today there are only a handful of passes over the range and none in this area.
