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

but, yes, it does look like a bridge from GE. I do recall hiking all the way up that side canyon to the ridge and there weren't any bridges in it.

Re: Mixing Jealousy & Admiration For DV NPS Staff

I'll add a third vote for Ranger Charlie, and a second vote for Digonnet. If it hadn't been for Digonnet's book (which I bought in 2005), and Steve Hall's website (which I found in 2009), I wouldn't have done anywhere near as much exploring as I have done in the park. There are some folks who seem t...

I'm too old fashioned :smile: I bring a Google Earth printout of the area and a pen, then draw where I've been on the map as I go. I think the arrow was not there my first trip to Funeral Slot but was there my most recent trip, but I could have missed it. Maybe a bored family camping at Texas Spring...

Re: April 1 to 6

Sounds like a great collection of hikes! If terrain is the main thing you have difficulty with and distance isn't as much of an issue, you might be able to reach Moonlight Bridge in Moonlight Canyon. If not, the narrows in many of the side canyons are worth visiting. For Red Wall, you'll probably on...

Re: Funeral Slot Scramble - Chimney Fall Stop

Very nicely done movie! But I would have liked to see more images of the areas you explored and less Google Earth overviews. You might enjoy visiting the narrows accessed by continuing through the tall, narrow slot that's on the left in the main canyon just past the turnoff for Funeral Slot. That si...
