DEEPEST VALLEY. A guide to Owens Valley its roadsides and mountain trails. Paul Bateman, William Kaufmann, Inc., 1978.
In eastern California, four hours north of Los Angeles, lies a long, trough-shaped valley bordered on either side by massive mountain ranges. Valley and mountains together form a region of superlatives. Here you will find our highest peak outside Alaska, Mount Whitney; the oldest of all living things, the bristlecone pine; and our deepest valley, the Owens.
