We really had a good time at Lone Pine. It was very peaceful and the campground was pleasant and we
enjoyed the swimming pool everyday after sight seeing.
Leaving Lone Pine we had to cross over the Inyo mountains. Because most of the moisture has been dropped on the Sierra Nevada’s and the two ranges before the Sierra Nevada’s, the Inyo mountains are very dry. As you reach the summit in the Inyo’s you enter Death Valley National Park boundary. You then drop down, a very steep drop, into the Saline Valley where Panamint Springs Campground is located part way down into the valley. Saline Valley is one mountain range west of Death Valley.
