I was also hoping you'd catch a shot of the Alabama Fire on Whitney Portal Road just west of Lone Pine.  Manzanar is between Lone Pine and Independence.  A couple of years ago, climbers found the long lost remains of a Manzanar internee who snuck out of the camp and headed into the Sierra for some fishing at the end of the war when security was more lax.  Others in his party said he fell and hit his head on some talus.  They buried him under a rock cairn but could not find the place again.  The Forest Service identified the man using survivor DNA.
