This is a unique opportunity to share a natural history treat with your dog. The drive from the Owens Valley up into the White Mountains east of the Sierra boasts an exceptional and seldom- seen bird’s eye view of the Sierra crest. The hike itself is a veritable vista fest of sweeping views down canyons and across the Great Basin toward Death Valley among the oldest trees on earth. Maybe your four-legged pal will be the one to sniff out the unidentified unmarked famous 4,000-year-old “Methuselah” among all the other ancient trees on the trail.
