Valley History

The Source

Bird Bob was given this picture, and he in turn gave it to me to share with you. The caption beneath the picture was written on the backside of the photograph.

Lower Warm Spring, Saline Valley, Inyo Co. Calif.
7 Apr 1955
Phillip Roos watching John in the spring.
Background: Our '50 Willys Jeep. Behind it
note the horizontal pipe. Water flowing out of it.
Not seen is a cattle trough (tank) below, in
which we could bathe in the warm water.
(The only human "improvements" there at that time.
