Why there are all those colored squiggly lines on Mt Morrison? Why big boulders are strewn around in fields randomly? Lucky for you, Friends of the Inyo Trail Ambassador Julia has the answers!


Under the imposing stature of mounts Morrison, Laurel, and Bloody, and on the shores of Convict Lakes, you’ll learn how many forces conspired to create this one of a kind place.

Meet her at the day hiker parking lot on Convict Lake Rd (before you get to Convict Lake Resort) at 10 AM. Bring water, sunscreen, snacks, layers, and appropriate footwear for hiking. The length and strenuousness of the walk will depend on group consensus (but be prepared to be out for about two hours).
