Re: May 2018 trip

Really nice pics...noticed my entry in the log on 4/20, not a lot of traffic if the log can be trusted (doubtful). Glad you had a good trip.

Re: Visiting Death Valley in a week

MDR,
Yes, just keep left at the forks and you'll be fine. They all appear well travelled. Worst case you'll detour to Goldbelt Springs which is not necessarily bad.

Re: Visiting Death Valley in a week

Drove Hunter Mountain Road in both directions a couple of weeks ago, other than a few washouts on the switchbacks heading down into Hidden Valley, nothing to be concerned about.

I Haven't driven Cottonwood Canyon in a number of years but you should have no issues there either. Have fun.

Correct, it was up near the plateau, I first noticed it in 2011 and it was gone later that year or the next...it was not there prior to 2011.

I drove that canyon several years ago but didn't notice that sign. A google search shows a Big Lars blog but not from that area. Maybe there might be a clue up there somewhere.

By the trees my guess would be the Hunter Mountain area but I've never seen those before. Alternate guess would be the back side of Cerro Gordo somewhere.

Looks like a training round. Similar to blue bombs.

This is not recent but I was out there in late spring and it seemed to me many rocks were missing or moved compared to previous visits. That said its still worth the trip and there are still plenty of rocks out there.

It is similar terrain, but further distance. Your Prerunner (if it is a Toyota)has a locker doesn't it?

I was prety shocked and frankly pi$$ed off when I saw how few stones were left out there on my last trip in April. I did meet an interesting scientist fellow doing some studies out there and he had a theory that when there was water on the playa and it froze that the rocks were capable of moving wit...

Even more sad that they died looking for something they were nowhere near finding.
