Long Valley campground, hiked down near the South fork of the Kern River. 20 degrees at night at 5,200 ft alt. Lots of ice and frozen sand. Trails are infrequently used so be prepared with a topo and a sense of adventure. Exit the trail and head North towards Manter creek/Kern River junction for a rugged bouldering hike. 50 degrees during the day, no trout fishing, next to zero wildlife. Beautiful, unadulterated country.
