About 8 yrs late….sorry. But I have done this same ride up through sherman pass from OC many of times. Mostly ride dirt bikes ip near Kville. Until I moved last summer. Love the brewery! Cheers!
Then began the Climb to Sherman Pass:

Once you summit Sherman the road heads north east until Blackrock ranger station then it is a South East trek to Kennedy Meadows and further down 9-Mile Canyon road back to the Owens valley and the 395. The decent of 9-mile is breath taking, but a huge bug splattered on my gopro before we got there so all that footage was no good. Once at the 395 we jetted north to Lone pine for Dinner and camped at Tuttle Creek. This is one of the few small creeks that flows east out of the Sierra's, most of the water flows west into the San Joaquin Valley. Camp Sites were only $5 a night, so pretty cheap accommodations for all four of us to share the spot:
