Re: Park Closure

Just an update on my trip. I spent several nights at eureka dunes and lee flats between 12/26 and 1/2. The restroom at eureka dunes was in bad shape, not sure if the thing was ever pumped out. I could not tell that the park was closed. I did not go into death valley so I don't know what that is like.

getting to saratoga springs

Can anyone tell me what the river crossing is like to get to Saratoga Springs in a normal year? Last year the Amargosa river was running kind of high and I found some stuck in it, this was about a week after a rain strom and the water was about 2ft deep. Is this normal?

Thanks
