Death Valley Jeep Trails- Roger Mitchell 1969

The last trail in the book is Goler, where I found this interesting passage...

"During the past year these isolated retreats have been inhabited by a small band of 'hippies', doing whatever hippies do."

Charles Manson is going before the parole board for the 12th time next week.

Very cool find.
Of course newer versions lack that type of historical relevance.

One of the best accounts of Manson's activities I have read to date is in Emmett Harder's book "These Canyons Are Full Of Ghosts". Very good read on the history of the area.

Hah! I have that book (really not much more than a pamphlet) and hadn't noticed that passage.

I love that book! We actually found the Peter B. Kine Secret camp he talks about. Hillside is pretty steep. It got late and I chickened out before I found the mine. It is supposed to be pretty close but no luck.
