Lily Spring Area Survey — slide shows

Here are some slide shows of field trips to the study area. They are not intended as public presentations, but constitute a record of LSAS field activities. For example, some subjects have multiple duplicate images, and minimum image processing has been carried out.

The slide shows are ZIP files that must be downloaded and expanded into a separate directory. Once you have done this, execute the file RunSlideShow.exe to view the slide show.

When a slide show is run, it first displays a control panel. To learn about how to control the slide show, click on the checkbox “Show keyboard shortcuts help display” prior to playing the slide show. This will result in a pop-up window giving instructions about how to control the show while it is playing.

Slide shows are in two formats, with images respectively 1024 pixels and 1600 pixels across. Select the resolution that is closest to that of your computer or display screen. When the slide show is playing, images are automatically scaled to the actual size of your screen.

To view the images individually: Use your browser to open the file imageviewer.html. The viewer may take 10 seconds or so to load while it constructs thumbnail images. Do not move the viewer file to some other location as it needs to access the slide show images in the /images folder.

We apologize for the slide shows being available only for the Windows operating system, not for Mac or Linux systems. However, the image viewer will function on any system.

Where a Garmin GPS track file is included, the Garmin MapSource or similar software may be needed to read the file.

Caution: The field trips depicted in these slide shows include considerable cross-country hiking on steep slopes that are not on trails. These are rugged, challenging areas to walk. We do not recommend that you hike off-trail in this manner unless you are highly experienced and fit. Most people will be adequately rewarded — with plenty to see, both magnificent views and flora — by staying on the Pacific Crest Trail, or even exploring along the Angeles Crest Highway.
