Hike Leader: John McDonald, Producer/Director
$20, includes admission to "California's Gold" Screening
Join filmmaker John McDonald for a moderate 2.2-mile round trip hike to Ghost Mountain. Learn about the family that lived there for 17 years and how John’s production team captured the amazing story that attracted Huell Howser to the project. There will be frequent stops along the trail to discuss points of interest and to share archival and production photos.
Meet: At the entrance to Blair Valley and then caravan to the South Home/Ghost Mountain trailhead. Hike ends at 11AM. Bring plenty of water, snacks and appropriate clothing including sun protection. The desert is still quite warm in October. Please be prepared to be hiking under the full force of the sun.
This hike is offered in conjunction with a screening of a lost episode of "California’s Gold," The Ghost Mountain Experiment, hosted by the late Huell Howser and filmed in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The film screening will be held at the Borrego Springs Performing Arts Center at 7pm on October 18. Please find more details about the screening here.
