: Cat, Lewis Bill, and I have all mentioned an interest.

: Hi All,



: Owens Valley in Sept. is hotter than ****!,

: Actually right now is the best time because it is still cool and snow is melting and the springs are flowing (the birds are singing....), but we are not prepared for it.

: I am currently researching other routes into Beveridge, And I have heard first hand that the route Guy Starbuck took is the most dificult.

: You won't beleve this but I heard it from a 77 year old (young) man who hikes there every year!, and is now preparing to go again.

From what I understand, this is the easiest way in. I would bet the best time to hike this fall would be in mid October (before it snows). My friend Jami and I are in for sure!

I will more than likely be at my claim the week that you mention doing my assment work for the year.Anyone removing any object what so ever will be a criminal act and I shall deal with in my own matter if the situation calls for it !!! Once again PLEASE leave things as you find them for others to enjoy !! Thank you

: Hi Rob, Cat & Ripley, et al,



: I am interested in an early Oct. hike to Beveridge. I've tried twice to reach it from Frecnhman's Spring, each time turning back in the large canyon below Keynot Pk. It is a rugged hike. I am slower now that I am 50. I believe it would take 2-days to get there by foot.



: Not owning a 4WD, each time I drove my car as far as I dared on the dirt road from Lone Pine area, having to camp about a mile or so from the mouth of the canyon leading into Frenchmans Spring.



: Keep in touch all, for I'd like to go.

In the early 1980 i meet a old guy that said he finally after several years of searching he found a way to get to Bevenridge from the east on Saline Valley, side and almost lost his chance to make it to the top because of tough time he had finding the trail but when he got to the site, he said he found a small steam engine and other interesting stuff. But for some reason, the story he was telling me about the steam engine did not resonable. Has anyone heard about a steam engine at this site ???

Johnnie ,

Are you talking about locomotion, or mill power? I am not sure if there is a steam driven engine up there, but I know there are a few engines laying around up there of various types, including a Rolls Royce aircraft engine. There might be a one at Lasky's Mill, but I can't be positive.

Not sure Dezdan, what the old guy was refering to it sound like he ment a little steam engine to pull the ore cars around but he may been refering to small engines to run the machinery, at the time i was selling at the Rose Bowl, and I did not a get a chance to get him to stick around and tell me more.
