White Mountains and Bristlecone Pines

Leader: Jay Lawrence

This year we are adding some new territory to a trip that has become an old favorite. Mignon Slentz suggested adding a side trip to Sylvania ghost town and huge mill site and camping at Cottonwood Creek, which is on 168, about ten miles from Dyer and gas (about a one hour drive from Big Pine). Sylvania is close by off the Lida Road / Palmetta ruins. A short cut goes from Cottonwood Creek to back entrance of Sylvania. This sounds like an excellent way to freshen things up and see some new sights. Expect HOT daytime temps 90-100° in the low altitudes (4,000 feet) and coolish 40-50° nights in the high altitudes (8,000-11,000 feet).
