Re: Keane Wonder Mine

A few times in the past, we have gone to the registration desk at the Ranch and bought a pool pass for $10. There are showers at the pool. I don't know if they still do this after the renovations. Whaaaaaa ..... that could be a huge game changer for me. I usually bail after a week because I've been...

Re: Keane Wonder Mine

While some may joke about changing the name of the park it happened with "The Oasis" which will always be Furnace Creek for me. Wasn't the lodge name in Yosemite changed as well? History needs to preserved for a reason. Our society today is so quick to attempt to erase history because it is scary an...

Re: RIP Death Valley pay phones

Is the one at Grapevine Ranger Station still intact? It was operational this past April when I was out that way.

Re: Marble Bath

I have discussed this area with other people whom I know that have found it. The general consensus is that there is a strange feeling in the area. One is welcome to visit but not to stay. YMMV. Maybe you felt a mountain lion's eyes on you. Maybe the first time I was up there...found a fairly large,...

Re: Marble Bath

Been there within the past year and there was a bee hive at the top of the chute. Finding it is more than half the fun. I have discussed this area with other people whom I know that have found it.

Re: Racetrack Playa, Ubehebe Crater & Artist's Palette Photography adventure

Nice stuff. Was that woman talking with you on the playa with you or there already? I think I met her when I was there last month. She's got some amazing photography if its the same person I met on my trip.

Re: Eureka Dunes Photography Trip

Hidden Dunes are really neat to see. If you head out early and no one is already there the dunes will be footprint free. You probably wouldn't be taking your trailer out there. Make it a day trip from Eurkea base camp. It's also a great place to camp. I have slept out there twice. Very peaceful. It...

Re: Furnace Creek Chevron

So is it retaining the "Furnace Creek" name? Hope so. I don't agree with the name change of the ranch area to The Oasis.
