Today Domi went kayaking. He got invited by our friend Michael, his wife Susie and her friend Vicki to paddle down the Owens River in Inyo County, California. They drove about 130 miles (or 210 kilometers) on scenic Highway 395 up to Bishop in order to get to the point where they started floating down the the winding river.
Herbie’s camp is located in Ridgecrest, the biggest city in the Indian Wells Valley. Recently we took a short ride to “Cerro Coso Community College” to get a better view.
Above you see Ridgecrest and along its most important street, China Lake Boulevard.
You can find beautiful gardens and interesting sculptures at the college campus.
Other towns in the so-called Indian Wells Valley are Trona, Inyokern and China Lake.
We got the chance to park on a dramatic spot, enjoying the sunset and overlooking the valley as well as the Sierra Nevada, Coso, Panamint, and Argus mountain ranges.
