Re: Jerry Feeman and UFO conspiracy

These "stormtrooper types" would better spend their time in the desert admiring the natural beauty and wildlife, especially during the blooms. BTW - Thanks BlackTurtle for your fantastic array of flower and plant images on your website. Add another thanks for all of your numerous forays into the par...

Video showing faults and cracks

Huck Outdoors made a special trip to the Trona area and have some great shots of the aftermath. At minute 2:50 they have a great angle on how the fault shifted right across the road.

Re: Have you lost your mind

I was wondering where my brain went and I should have known that it joined my heart which lays in Death Valley. Someday the rest of my body parts may join up as well? :roll:

Re: 6.4 earthquake in Ridgecrest

I was sitting on top of Cucamonga Peak in the San Gabriel mountains, and felt this! :shock: Please describe in more detail what the quake felt like, how long it lasted and what was going through your mind. I grew up nearly on top of the San Andreas Fault and felt a few quakes rumble through but thi...

Re: Death Valley Ravens

They seem to really love the sleeping circles too :). Thanks for the pix and I really enjoy watching these intelligent and energetic birds in the park. I've come across many of these "sleeping circles" and wondered what they were. Some of the larger ones with big boulders are thought to be hunting ...

I was camping at Texas Spring and turned it into a loop hike of about 15 miles along the base of the mountains.
Do you have any images to share?

Re: Dispersed Camping December

The Hole in the Wall area might be an option as well. Unless washed out the drive is shorter than Echo Canyon. I've never stayed overnight there but three out of the four times I've day hiked in the area there were several other campers all set up. There was still plenty of room for others.

Re: Death Valley Jim - current status?

I hope his absence makes space for more authors and photographers to share their romance with the desert. Thank you for giving me a voice for a moment to speak the truth from my perspective on the situation. Thanks again for stopping by here, adding clarifications, and especially for your last two ...

Re: Death Valley Jim - current status?

Jim made some really bad decisions that affected him as well as our family and the fans who admired and supported him. These decisions continue to affect him today legally, financially, and personally. I don't forsee him returning to death valley as anything but a tourist. I appreciate you coming t...

Re: Death Valley Jim - current status?

Never met him or communicated with him ... Last I seen published he was based out of California City. Jack Freer (a member here) did some research into him recently. He’ll likely chime in if he chooses. If anyone has a means of contacting DVJ, and is willing to PM me with it, I'm willing to attempt...

My knees could not hold up to that!
My knees are not the best with a history of meniscus repairs in both. Like most "seasoned" hikers, I love to climb up but pay the price when resisting gravity on the way back down. :dance:

Death Valley Jim - current status?

I have a sense that this thread may stir up some old controversy about Death Valley Jim (DVJ) so if our forum administration wishes to delete this thread, I'm totally fine with that. When I discovered Death Valley National Park about six years ago I remember searching around the Internet for more in...
