Carpool 14 miles from Bishop to Mendenhall Park in Big Pine, CA. From 395 South, turn right on Baker Creek Rd. The Park is on the immediate left. This 11-mile jaunt takes us up to the historic ruins of Glacier Lodge, 7800 ft. elevation. Be ready for long stretches of 10% grade. Water available at Lower Sage Campground, mile 10. Lunch is possible in little Big Pine. The Death Valley option adds a very scenic loop from Big Pine into the Inyo Mountains, 34 miles and 3700 ft. extra. Mister Muy intends to camp for 1 or 2 nights at Upper Sage campground near Glacier Lodge to do the rigorous 5-mile hike up South Big Pine Creek to the Clyde Glacier on Wednesday. Let Guy know if you’re ready to join the adventure. Others return to Bishop tonight.
