Just a brief note that I kind of reached a crossroads and have decided to discontinue posting here on the forum (and all others). Other forum members before me who have left did so without saying goodbye and I didn't want to do that. I'm going to spend more time hiking off the grid but at the same t...

I will just miss you at the Eureka Dunes. I'm doing a brand new report on the Eureka Dunes and then hiking Eureka Peak. It sounds like you've done some of my 6 recommended family/easier hikes that I have posted here -- http://www.panamintcity.com/recommendations/deathvalleyhikes.html To answer one o...

Gower - thank you for exploring and continuing to document new areas. Can't wait to hear about the slot you found. I plan to get out to your Goblin area within the next year or so.

Not sure if this is the area you are referencing, but this picture shows a view of some of the terrain in between the Sourdough Canyon Road summit and the high point above water canyon.

Kauri, I think we are going to green-light the Sugarloaf hike despite the mountain lion prowling the area. I'm not hiking alone and we will each have a bottle of bear spray with us. Plus, we don't intend to pass through the specific area where the mountain lion was last seen enjoying a nap after his...

Kauri, it seems like they surprised the lion when it was napping/resting after having killed/fed upon the young burro that was dead nearby. From a distance of 10 ft. or so away the lion leapt out of thick brush up onto the rocks above and quickly moved over the canyon wall and out of sight. it never...

Just wanted to say that I have Tucki Mountain summit planned for the next couple of weeks, weather and snow-level permitting. I originally planned to do Sugarloaf Pk but then I heard that 2 days ago a couple people were hiking along the standard route to Sugarloaf, about halfway there, when they sur...

Kauri, you really are one of the foremost explorers of the park here in modern times. Practically this entire trip of yours was spent hiking out, seeing, and documenting places we know nothing about. I'm really enjoying the reports and photos because it's so interesting to read about beautiful new p...

Fantastic report and trip, sheepranch. I'm glad you released this report so we could all enjoy the photos and documentation. Very interesting that you didn't run into any dry falls in the North Fork. I guess the info and photos we got regarding the North Fork was either faked (to keep us out of ther...

Thanks for your comments, Kauri. I'm really glad that I got to share the beauty of that area with others and can help potentially open the area up to future English-speaking visitors in a safe way. That's interesting that you singled out Konstantin's quote. By the way, I have invited Konstantin to d...
