    SoCal Event - Bishop, CA - July 27-28

    Yep, the time has come for annual Bishop trip. My schedule got a little hectic this year so I had to make it a little shorter this time. We will be taking the same two trails (Silver/Wyman Canyons and Wheeler Ridge) but his time we are doing Silver Canyon at night!

    Friday - July 27th - Silver/Wyman Canyons

    Description: Silver Canyon starts at the bottom of the White Mountain in the town of Laws just a few miles north of Bishop. This run will provide some spectacular views of the stars with no city lights to interfere. We will then descend down Wyman Canyon. If everyone is up for it, we will return back the way we came in. This is an easy trail but the the heights can be intimidating. Low range will be required for the switchbacks. We will be getting close to 12,000 ft elevation so those that come into town the same day for this run may experience altitude sickness.

    When: July 27, 2012

    Where: Laws, CA

    Time: 8:00 PM, we will meet up and head out once everyone is ready. Airing down is optional for this run but it can make the ride more pleasant.
    Meeting Spot: In the clearing next to Silver Canyon Road just outside of Laws.

    Communications: CB channel 37

    Saturday- July 28th - Wheeler Ridge

    Description: Wheeler Ridge is a fun trail that will require decent ground clearance on the technical areas. Lockers are not required but can make some obstacles easier. Depending on how quickly we get through this, we will be taking a detour to a beautiful isolated lake for some great scenic views.

    When: July 27, 2012

    Where: Swall Meadows, CA

    Time: 10:00 AM, we will meet up and head out once everyone is ready.
    Meeting Spot: In the clearing off Sky Meadow Road in Swall Meadows.

    Communications: CB channel 37

    I had to change things up this trip. I wanted to run Coyote Canyon but I do not have time for a pre-run. It has been MANY years since I have been on that run.

    I hope to make this and I think I've talked Colleen into coming. But mark me as tentative. My work is talking about sending me to Bozeman Montana around that time and said they would pay mileage (although they haven’t seen the bill yet), so I might be doing a Hummer road trip and some rock hunting around that time with my wife.

    Glad you will make this one. You will finally see the top of Sierras.

    Is Coyote Canyon out of Big Pine? Sanger Meadow- Coyote Flat?
    I checked out the lower parts last year but the Forest Service still had closed access to vehicles because of the burn.
    You sent me this link a couple years ago. The author has some nice write ups of the area.

    Have you done Wyman to Crooked Creek?
    When I ran Wyman a couple years ago I was tempted but was solo so held off.
