Re: A jet crashes in the DV area, several onlookers injured

Hmm, I wonder if the military jets will be taking a break during Labor Day weekend? Not only in Rainbow Canyon, but in general? I have plans up in the Panamints, and it would be helpful to not have the usual jet noise in the background. :smile: I know they knock off on other major holiday weekends, ...

Re: Bonnie Claire for sale

Ah, okay. When I see "CBD" these days I think of marijuana... couldn't see the connection in this case though, LOL.

BTW, in Australia, CBD means Central Business District. ;-)

Re: Bonnie Claire for sale

CBD? What is that all about?

Someone pointed out to me that lead contamination and the cleanup thereof may be a rather large issue at Bonnie Clare. Perhaps it depends on what you want to do with the place?

Re: Pronghorn antelope sightings in/near DV

And, I saw some more antelope near DVNP. This time, while driving down the Wiley Road to Gold Point. First I saw a pair to the west of the road, but they were making a mad dash away from me. A little farther down the road I saw a female with a juvenile, both on the east side of the road. Here's a pi...

Re: Wahguyhe Peak Via Strozzi Ranch

Some of those NPS staffers are hiking fiends and getting close to bagging two hundred high spots in the park. I'm jealous and have no hope in the world of catching up to them. Our very own Candace66 may be the only one in this forum even close to tailing these hiking maniacs. I've had a peek at tha...

Re: Some desert wildlife videos

Unrelated comment: Candace, I get a big charge out of reading your entries in the logs atop the prominent mountains in Death Valley. The latest was finding your note atop Wayguyhe Peak last week. You will always remain one step ahead of me! Thanks for the update! The one major DVNP peak I still nee...

Some desert wildlife videos

This afternoon, I was checking out the Providence Mountains State Recreation Area website. Their website has some great "trail camera" videos. I'll embed two of my faves. Visit the link then scroll down to find a few more. :cool: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=615 [media]https://youtu.be/Ibm4Hu73v...

Re: Pronghorn antelope sightings in/near DV

Not DVNP, but... I recently visited the east side of the White Mountains. I saw a single antelope on the open sagebrush flats while driving up the road along Indian Creek. Then two days later, I saw a pair of them, again on the flats, while driving down Trail Canyon Road. Here's a low-quality shot o...

Death Valley NP closure - my pics

On April 23, I drove across the Park on Hwy 190, on my way to the Owens Valley. I took a number of pics of the various barricades, signs, etc. I passed along the way. For posterity, here are those pics in a flickr album. It appears they successfully uploaded in order, from east to west. I also added...

I woke up and the vehicle was shaking quite noticeably.
So you were just like Elvis, "All Shook Up?" :biggrin:
Indeed! :biggrin: There were at least three aftershocks I felt, before I could get back to sleep.

Re: Death Valley National Park is CLOSED – April 4, 2020

I hiked up Mt. Nunn a few years ago. I used the beta in Michel Digonnet's guidebook. But Bob Burd has also climbed it, and of course produced his usual trip report with map and GPX file you can download: https://www.snwburd.com/bob/trip_reports/nunn_1.html I've also been up on Sylvania Mountain.

Re: M6.5 Earthquake outside Tonopah

When that occurred, I was camping just off Highway 264 at the South End Of The Fish Lake Valley. Sleeping in the back of my SUV, on my way back to Las Vegas from a week-long hiking and camping trip.. According to Google Maps, I was about 60 miles south of the epicenter. So as you can imagine I did i...
