I called Gina Molina at CSUSB and she sent me this info. There's an outside chance that I'll be able to make the class. I still hoping.

You may already have this info but it's all I was able to get. Hope it helps.

This class focuses on the southern Panamint Mountains of Death Valley, and discusses the men and women who came to Death Valley or other mining centers and spent their lives following the dream of one more “glory hole.” A caravan is ledto Warm Springs canyon and Striped Butte (in the hidden, 4500 ft elevation, Shangri-la Valley that thousands of tourists each year never get to see). The class covers:  Death Valley 49ers lost 1996 lost German tourist Butte Valley Indians Big Talc Mines Story of Anvil Springs the Lost Mormon Mine true story of Stone CabinYou can help dedicate a commemorative historic publication, tales of Carl Mangle & his friends, Panamint Russell & his Lost Ledge of Gold and the geology of Striped Butte.
