Six months certainly makes a difference in driving conditions. It would seem that Winnemucca, NV is the halfway point for things to get more snowy, icy and cold. It was a beautiful sunny day in Los Angeles when we left Ally and Hero’s home with Jean Marie in Simi Valley to make the two day drive back to Eastern Washington…

Heading up to the Santa Susana Pass on the 118 West…

Cresting the hill…

Lovely Lake Palmdale, CA and into the upper desert…

Up a slight grade and headed into Red Rock Canyon State Park

Why it is called Red Rock Canyon…

A better view of the canyon…

Highway 178 West… just ahead. This turnoff takes one to Walker Pass, up to the Chimney Peak road, Lake Isabella, Kernville and the Kern River. I have taken this exit hundreds of times through the years…Back in the day, there was a phone booth next to the sign…windiest phone booth on the planet…

Little Lake with ice. No fishing allowed here. It is private property !

Red Hill and Fossil Falls. When Michael was a toddler, this signaled we were almost there. There being Lone Pine, CA…

Ranch House Cafe in Olancha, CA…I have been going to this joint forever when traveling up and down 395…

A cottonwood tree standing guard on a cow pasture with Owens Lake in the distance, in Olancha. I parked under this tree many times for a short snooze when traveling up to the Owens Valley to go bird hunting, duck hunting, varmint hunting and looking for bright, shiny black things…

That’s Owens Lake in the distance…

The Dino Hut in Cartago, a couples of miles North of Olancha and the factory of the water stealers…I never pass this place without taking a photo…

Almost there ! Coming into Lone Pine, CA…

Best Western Frontier Motel just outside of Lone Pine. I have been staying here since 1953 when the cost of a room was $6.00 a night. They have a room there dedicated to my Mom…

The main drag in Lone Pine, CA…two of the better local eateries on the right…

The climbing shop was my Dad’s favorite liquor store back in the day and two Trout art pieces on the roofs beyond…

They should be open now…Best hot dogs North of Pink’s in L.A. ...Frosty Chalet, Lone Pine, CA

Heading towards Independence, CA…High Sierra on the left…

On Hwy 6, going North to Nevada out of Bishop, CA…When I was stationed with the 10th. Special Forces Group (ABN), at Ft. Devens, MA…Provincetown wasn’t quite so far away…

Bye California…

The White Mountains, North of Bishop in Nevada…

Pulling into Hawthorne, NV…This town has more ammunition bunkers than anywhere else in the world…Just passing’ through…

Walker Lake, NV…

Booking it through the desert North of Fallon, NV…

…a right turn on Hwy 80 and we are headed East to Winnemucca, NV as the temperature falls and the light fades…

6AM the following morning…

Yep…I remember this place…

North on Hwy 95 outside of Winnemucca, NV…It is COLD !

So Ally has been asking me to take her and her rescue pup, Hero, up to the Owens Valley to do some exploring, arrowhead hunting Ally’s favorite pastime and getting her dog familiar with the great outdoors and it’s inhabitants (ie. the ability to distinguish between a lizard and a buzz worm).

Back in the day, when these two toeheads (below) went with their Dad up to the mountains ( and desert) in a beat up 1953, powder blue Ford, woody (he liked powder blue, go figure)…this was the stomping ground…

And, yes it looked about this beat up – without the board on top….

PT and twin Greg after a day on Lone Pine Creek…1955

If one starts at the bottom of the map,after enlarging , by clicking on the MAP, one sees the following creeks: Tuttle, Lone Pine, Hogback, George, Bairs, Shepherd and Symmes. All of these small waters hold fish – some of them hold very large Brown and Rainbow Trout…One, holds Golden Trout hybrids…I have been fishing in all the waters since 1952…YIKES

It was in these places that I learned how to read water, discern holding and feeding areas, explore the wonderful world of Entomology and avoid being bitten by buzzworms. Over the course of the next few months, I will relate some experiences on each of these cricks and give tips on how to fish some locationswith your kids and Fly gear… These two BOZOS got their creds. crawling around in the bushes and immersing themselves in the project at hand…

Michael and Ally on a learning expedition in the middle of Lone Pine Creek…

It was certainly a lot more fun that posing for ridiculous publicity photos, in the front yard, with my MOTHER:

Good day, even though it is pouring cats and dogs in Los Angeles. I opened my email and was astounded that my twin brother Greg had begun to send me the photos (treasures) that I have been waiting for a very long time. These are pictures that my Dad took of us up in the Owens Valley and other locations in the West before my Mother remarried and moved us to Carrollton, GA in 1957.

Here are two:

This photo was taken on the front lawn of the Frontier Motel , under a big cottonwood tree ,in Lone Pine, CA after a day of fishing on Lone Pine Creek. The fish were cleaned on the opposite side of the motel in a little creek that was crawling with red ants…this was in the Summer of 1954…there is now a room named after our Mother at this motel…

 

Frontier Motel…today…

My daughter, Nadia in the driveway of the Frontier Motel in 1974 with Mt. Whitney in the background…

PT and a Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout that came out of Yellowstone Lake in the Summer of 1956. I caught that fish with a gob of worms attached to the treble hook of a spinner off an island beach in the middle of the lake. My Dad told me I wouldn’t catch anything by using that method – and off a beach…It wasn’t the only one I caught!! HA,ha…

Now I will be able to put some stories around the photos I receive. If I remember correctly, there were quite a few…Thanks Greg!!!

I am putting up some photos of points made from obsidian, jasper and chert. These are arrowheads, darts and spear points that I found with Michael and Ally throughout the Southern Sierras, Owens Valley, Saline Valley, Eureka Valley and Deep Springs Valley. They will be up when the sun is shining ( It is shining NOW)…I like to use available light for my photography…

 

Rock Art, Southern Sierras, near Walker Pass, 1984…

 

Michael, 100 Meters to the right of the Rock Art, but, He ain’t talkin’, 1987…

These are SOME that we have found, I keep the broken pieces that are interesting…

 

These Obsidian points were used for larger game animals…

 

Ally, ready to spread the barbed wire to visit a favorite spot…

 

Bird and Rabbit points…the kids found a lot of these (closer to the ground)…

 

Jasper points, exceptionally hard to find…they are a rarity in the Owens Valley…

Ally in Deep Spring Valley…

 

These are Obsidian points that are very old, the stone is not as clear ( sandblasted) as more recent points and the style is different…

 

I found this Obsidian point stuck in dried mud, on it’s side ( are you hearing me Dean?) in a little lake bed near…

 

This is a point made from Chert, it is the ONLY one I have found in the “O” Valley & I been lookin’ since 1952…possibly traded from another area?…

 

Another, large, older obsidian point. Found many this shape and size in an area that is now covered with water near Big Pine, CA…

CALIFORNIA AND GREAT BASIN ARCHAEOLOGY

My Brother Greg, has quite a few more that both of us found when we were kids… I’ll see if he will send me some photos.and I’ll add some stories like the time we went to Eureka Valley back in ’57 when there were NO ROADS into the big dune at the end of the Valley…It was also possible to pick up “live” 20mm canon rounds on the ground…

These are some photos of artifacts and points I took with Ally at the Eastern California Museum in Independence, CA, yesterday – 9.03.2011 to include here:

…and Ally, Nadia and Michael…a mixed bag before and after…I have noticed recently (10-2019) some searches inquiring about Jean Marie’s ethnicity. Her real last name is Hong. Her Dad, who passed a month ago at 91, came from the Shanghai area of China. Her Mom is of Chinese heritage from Myanmar (formerly Burma)…Jean Marie was born in San Francisco…
