I see Cerro Gordo is off Hwy 136. I will be driving My Jeep 4WD down with rugged tires and camping gear, so I'll have no problems. I have lots of experience offroading. I have driven Hwy 190 and photographed rock acstracts along the roadside (a 'geometric explosion!' - does anyone know who I'm quoting?<g> Can you PM me how to contact Mike Patterson? If you saw my gallery (thanks for the kind words), up can see I love rock formations and I will go far out of my way to find them. Next year, I"m chartering a small yacht to take me to a remote island for 4 days of shooting odd rock formations, even, so a 4WD trip is no problem for me. Please PM me his contact info as this alone could 'make' the trip for me.

Yes, I have been to Mono Lake a few times but only for brief stay each time. I see the fall time is some of the best time to get nice skies, is that right? I hope I"m not too early for rain clouds, etc.

How do I find this Canyon? Is it on a topo map?
