The Owens Valley Tour

From John Wayne Airport, Orange Country to Reno, Nevada

The Owens Valley is roughly 100 miles long and varies from 6 to 20 miles wide. It is a rift valley, lying between two large seismic faults. It is of historic importance in that during the early 1900's the City of Los Angeles began diverting water from the Owens Valley via the Owens Valley Aqueduct. There has been a great deal of strife over this action ever since. The movie, Chinatown, starring Jack Nicholson, is based in part on some aspects of the diversion of water by Los Angeles.
