Final story from Sierra correspondent

Thumbnail image for owens-valley-dwp-trucks-lao.jpgMichael J. Ybarra, the longtime California freelancer who died recently in a fall near Yosemite, had a byline this week in the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. It's about an exhibition at the G2 Gallery in Venice of photographs from the Eastern Sierra, to benefit the Eastern Sierra Land Trust. "It's a landscape begging to be photographed — and kept intact," writes Ybarra, who lived at least part of the time in Bishop, at the northern head of the region's Owens Valley. The Times includes an editor's note:

Ybarra, 45, a regular contributor to The Times, filed this piece a few days before he went climbing near Yosemite National Park and died in an accidental fall this month. A memorial service will be held at 11:30 a.m. July 29 at Yosemite Lodge, The Falls.

Here's our story from earlier on Ybarra's death.
