I woke up and the vehicle was shaking quite noticeably.
So you were just like Elvis, "All Shook Up?" :biggrin:

Re: Author Carlos Castaneda - Death Valley death

The rangers sadly told the family the search was canceled. It was pretty sad to see the reaction of the family. They had this conversation inside the restaurant at PSR where it is easy to listen to others when it isn't crowded. That was back when the breakfast buffet was great. I've heard it isn't ...

Re: Crystal Peak Sparkles At Sunrise And Sunset

Crystal Mountain appears to be the largest outcrop of this rock that I can find. Very cool! Andrew, I sure do appreciate you stopping by and adding your expertise here! If you ever enjoy the experience of Crystal Peak make sure you catch it at sunrise on a clear morning because it almost seems to h...

Re: Crystal Peak Sparkles At Sunrise And Sunset

Nice! Do you know anything about the geology? Thanks, Geek, and I'm embarrassed to say that I know nothing of the geology of Crystal Peak except that it dazzles the eye and mind at sunrise and sunset because it's whiteness stands in such stark contrast to the rest of its immediate environs and that...

Re: Crystal Peak Sparkles At Sunrise And Sunset

I had been hoping to get back to the great basin area this summer (possibly visiting the west side of the national park). I'm curious, does the nice dog (maybe a golden retriever?) at 2:50 in the video belong to your grandkids? Thanks, Kauri, and that cute pup is my daughter's new addition which sh...

Crystal Peak Sparkles At Sunrise And Sunset

Forty miles southwest of Nevada's Great Basin National Park lies Crystal Peak just inside of the western border of Utah and twenty miles south of Highway 50. At sunrise and sunset, you will see why it's named Crystal Peak. I took the grandkids for a wonderful exploration adventure on April 21, 2020 ...

Re: Homesick For DEVA - Here's your medicine

I’m not sure how YouTube picks which image from the video to display as the “preview,” but I think that image from near Hole-in-the-Wall (at 1:30 in the movie) was taken at the exact spot where I lost my favorite butterfly finger puppet over the cliff when I was 4 years old (many years ago), and my...

Homesick For DEVA - Here's your medicine

Enjoy the next best thing to being in Death Valley National Park by touring with me to view the park's road system from unusual perspectives. Over the past seven years, I've attempted to capture images of the road as well as from the road. I hope you enjoy the mix!

Re: Mysterious Steel Rebar North of Mesquite Dunes - Details

If one was so inclined, they could dig into the research permits issued during the time these rebar stakes were there but that's a lot of work. Hey Candace_66 and Gowergulch, thanks for revisiting this "ancient thread" with more details. The erosion control sure sounds like the most plausible optio...

\And so weird to hear changes are coming to Ballarat!
I regret never having visited Ballarat now that it's changing. I won't have the luxury of context that history provides by the time I finally visit this iconic place. Thanks for the news and the updates.

Answer: Mustard Canyon - Details

Bluegreen kayak got the location and substance correct but the time of day wrong. On one of my first trips ever to DEVA I exited my vehicle to take a closer look at the yellow mudwall formations in Mustard Canyon. While walking the short distance from the graded dirt road to the mudwalls I heard cra...

You are zeroing in on the mystery but more Death Valley detective sleuthing is required for a fully correct answer. :bawling:
