Re: Retired Ranger Jay Snow Says It Best

I'm currently working out hikes for our March trip. I am always the organizer. When I start thinking about where to go, I'm mostly thinking about revisiting old haunts we have not been to for 10+ years. But then I start poking around and looking at my old notes and notes from folks like Kauri and S...

Re: rusted truck below King Midas Mine

One thing I wish to do is take a copy of this vintage photo with me and see if I can stand in the exact same location and take a selfie of me holding the photo up. I've asked Jim and Anna to please ID the people in the photo. Notice how in the left caption it's written "camp" with an arrow pointing...

Re: rusted truck below King Midas Mine

Jim and Anna are starting to compile their stories about King Midas. This is how Anna describes the rusted truck frame. "The frame of the old vehicle there is from a truck Jim and his father drove from the Skido gold mine in California. They used the engine up at the mine." http://salamandersociety...

Re: Christmas 2019: Sand, Sun, and Snow (Pic Heavy)

Great photos, and thank you for taking the time to write up such a detailed trip report!!

And, wow, there is definitely a lot less gravel in Artist's Dip 2 Canyon! I'll hopefully be able to check it out on my next DV trip (whenever that ends up happening...).

Re: Spoke with husband-wife who last worked King Midas Mine

Amazing!! Maybe you and Jim and Anna could write a book from their stories of working the mine and living in the Beatty/DV area? :grin: I'm sure there are many folks who would enjoy reading it! Especially if it includes old photos of what life was like in DV during that time. In regards to questions...

Re: I Have Something In Common With Death Valley Scotty and Albert Einstein, do you?

So was I wrong? I was your first responder ... :???: You were spot on right off the bat but I wanted to see if anyone else wanted to join the Albert, Scotty, Dazed club. LOL Ah, I thought he was wrong, so I was trying to think of something else you all might have in common... Though, technically, w...

Re: King Midas Treasure More Valuable Than Gold Within

Very nice! Thank you for posting this hi-resolution image of the memorial at the King Midas mine (which will help preserve the contents of the letter for posterity). I hope to someday visit the mine, after my failed attempt due to high winds during my last DV trip. (BTW, the image loaded very quickl...

Re: PM’s stuck in outbox

PM's will sit in your Outbox until the recipient logs in. So check the profile of the person you PM'd...have they logged in since you sent the PM? I have a PM that has been sitting in my Outbox since February 2018! Because unfortunately that member doesn't visit here anymore. :sad: Aha, that makes ...

PM’s stuck in outbox

My “sent” PM’s have been stuck in my outbox, one since yesterday and another since December 31. Is anyone else having this issue?

Re: Have you lost your mind

Thanks Kauri, It sounds as though it may be my shutterfly settings. I will attempt to correct the problem and write a trip report about a place you know well, the Grapevine Mountains. Great! I think I recall that you did quite a bit of exploring in the area between Fall and Red Wall many years ago?

Re: Have you lost your mind

Can someone help me get the actual picture to post. If I can figure it out I will post a low quality trip report. thanks When I click the link in your other post, Shutterfly is asking me to log in, so I'm not entirely sure whether Shutterfly works with the image tag setup on this forum. Generally, ...

I have no idea, but your post did make me read through biographies of Death Valley Scotty and Albert Einstein, which I should have done long ago (though I couldn't find a biography of Death Valley Dazed anywhere :lol: and anyway reading bios of all three celebrities could possibly be considered chea...

Re: Racetrack Playa has water

No Kauri, these were not done with the HDR setting. I did some post processing but very little, that camera with the polarizer just takes good pictures and the clear air and crisp conditions were contributing factors. Wow, that's impressive! (And it makes me want to trade in my old cameras for a ne...

My camera is a Nikon D7200 with a polarizer filter.
Very nice photos! I'm guessing you're also using an HDR setting as well as the polarizing filter? I have an old Sony camera with an auto HDR setting, but my photos never turn out with as good of "dynamic range" as the ones you posted.

I think that's the dry-fall on page 3 of
