Where is this?

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

I love these games....My guess is off 395 by Mammoth Geothermal Plant, just off old HW 203 near the crossing of Mammoth Creek....better known as the Casa Diablo area where the actual establishment sat near the present day Geothermal Plant. The era of the car coincides with that of Casa Diablo.

My fist guess was somewhere off Antelope Springs Road, but the angle looking south to Laurel Morrison and McGee over willows in the background indicated a dirt road spur off the old HW between the Casa Diablo (geothermal plant) and Mammoth Creek road crossing. Anyhow its somewhere in that area No?

You should have asked the make and year of the car to make it harder!

Tallest Mt = Mount Morrison

Make of car = Maybe a 1927 Cadillac LaSalle Coupe?

Year sounds about right. I didn't look closely enough to see the make. Think the bullet holes were from target shooters or Bonnie and Clyde types?
