SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

I have heard these are called ‘cow patties’, and that there are lots of them out this way. This is south of Pyramid Lake, on the west side of the road …

Well, I made it back. Looks like Whitaker Peak is 4 and a half miles. Then I went on for another mile or so. Looks like a 10-mile hike, and a pretty good day; a beautiful day in Southern California.
