The tragic story of the Lone Pine, Calif., Earth Quake is told on a monument near this pioneer's grave. "On the date March 26, 1872 an earthquake of major proportions shook Owens Valley and nearly destroyed the town of Lone Pine. Twenty seven persons were killed." Sixteen of these were buried in a common grave near this serene point overlooked by Mt. Whitney and the High Sierra.
