The high desert volcanic tableland north of Bishop, California is an ancient landscape. Its character was shaped 700,000 years ago when a monstrous eruption in Long Valley blanketed the region in a fiery rain of ash and rock. The violent convulsion left behind a sere and desolate rolling plateau.

350 square miles were smothered by a 500-foot-thick mantle of incandescent rock fragments that covered hills and filled canyons. As the red hot material cooled, it fused and compacted into a porous, pinkish rock known today as Bishop Tuff.

Sharon Giacomazzi takes us along an informative journey through a rock art site in central California. Read the full article below in Issue 10:

I knew this was in the area but never explored it to the extent you have seeing all of the pictographs. THX for sharing that. Taking in all that you have shared on a hike, soaking in one of the hot pools in Owens Valley, checking out the movie industry history of the valley, and then wandering around Morning Light Gallery featuring the art of Galen Rowell in Bishop would make an ideal weekend trip if in the Mammoth Lakes/SoCal area.

Dogwood - Galen Rowell is sorely missed. What an inspirational person and incredible photographer!
