September 17 @ 8:00 am September 18 @ 12:30 pm

The Eastern Sierra is a fascinating place to learn about volcanoes and the volcanic history of the region. From the Long Valley Caldera and the Glass Mountain Range to Mammoth Mountain, Mono-Inyo Craters, and into the Mono Basin, we will explore some of the world-class volcanic features in Mono Lake’s backyard. This seminar will involve moderate hiking at elevations from 6,500-11,000 feet above sea level. We will likely walk 2-3 miles over the course of the day, some of which is off trail and will be short and steep.
