Re: Travel beyond end of Keane tramway

Yes, I recall that thread. Searching for "keane wonder" leads to a lot of matches here. I don't know if I'll find the answer looking at a video - I do recall a video DV Dazed posted of the actual talks at the opening ceremonies, and may have asked my question back then. But I'm getting old and my me...

Travel beyond end of Keane tramway

There was a pretty clear old mine trail that goes up from the Keane Wonder mines, all the way to Chloride Cliffs. It runs rather near some of the collapsing or questionable mine entrances that were closed off. I have not been there since the area was re-opened. I wonder, has anyone been up there who...

Re: Flooding and Lake Manly today?

Water on the east side of the Panamints as well. Best way to see these images is to click on the little "camera +15" icon in the corner of the first photo. The text is not very interesting, except to point to the photographer's site. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6800057/Incredible-10-mil...

Re: Flooding and Lake Manly today?

I'm glad you like it! You're the one who first turned me on to MODIS images but I found it hard to navigate with the clicking for the part of the country and the zoom.

Re: Flooding and Lake Manly today?

Personally I like this MODIS viewer: https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov/ Among other things you can turn on some features to help you navigate, and once you get to the place you want to be you can easily go back a day or three until you have a good shot. I believe there is one pass of the entire p...

Re: Backcountry Navigation

I use an earlier Garmin model, with the free maps from gpsdepot, and also an Android GPS app called USA Topo. I sprang for an extra 5 or 10 bucks to get the right to cache maps in the app, which is essential for back country off-net use. I have Gaia GPS on the phone also for backup. There are advant...

Re: The Park may be getting bigger

Perhaps a question as to whether it runs through wilderness or not?
Just a guess.

Re: Down a fantastic Salt Funnel to Death Valley underworld

This is the area sometimes known as Gnome's Workshop? Did you see the long linear rock alignment near where the power line crosses? Or maybe you were in a different spot.

The formations are very cool but I though you were actually going to somehow lower a lens into the salt funnel :)
