Lights out in less than two minutes at Zabriskie

I enjoyed capturing some rare light streams on the ridgelines around Zabriskie Point as Mr. Sun called it a night and turned out the lights.

Eventually it will get abandoned and just be a dip along a ridge.
Andrew, I was hoping that you would be kind enough to provide some of your expertise to my questions. Thanks!

Muddy people at Badwater

Before heading out for my hike up Lower Bad Canyon from the Badwater parking lot I chatted up some folks who had vehicles smothered in light brown mud. They told me that they had come through Ballarat, explored the Goler Airstrip, drove over Mengel Pass and were now headed for the more northern part...

Colossal Lower Bad Canyon - stopped at 3rd dry fall

Just south of Badwater lies Bad Canyon's mouth leading to deep walls, crazy colors, dry falls and boulder ladders. With the rapid elevation gains comes spectacular views of Death Valley and the Panamint Range. Join me up to the third dry fall before stopping out.

Satire leads to Flat-tired

"I have determined, through exhaustive research, that the smoothest speed for washboard roads is precisely 10 MPH OVER the point in which you lose control of your vehicle! " I laughed out loud when I read this, I assumed it was a clever satire with the dead giveaways being "exhaustive research and p...

Upper Bad Canyon - Really Good Time

Drop down into Upper Bad Canyon west of the trail to Mount Perry from Dante's View and return in a roundabout way December 2018. I got stopped at the top of the narrows but still so glad I made the effort. The Timbisha Red is spectacular in the morning light. The view from the westside ridge is uniq...

Re: Edmunds tests Honda Ridgeliner in DV

The journey is part of the experience in the desert, slow down and enjoy the ride. It seems to me that there is an ideal speed to drive smoothly over washboard roads. This depends on the wheelbase and wheel size. If you go just the right speed your vehicle will just his the tops of the washboards a...

... perhaps on our upcoming trip I'll try a milder hike somewhat to the northwest, starting on 20-mule team road.
Thanks and you're wise to take the more moderate route to the Borax Benchmark. The views are spectacular from the BM and even better from the summit of Blue Mountain.

Gnarly Notch Anomaly Near Keane Wonder

At sunset, while driving up the Daylight Pass Highway towards Beatty, NV I happened to glance over my left shoulder into the setting sun and noticed a notch in a long flat gravel bar that I had never noticed before. By the time my curiosity seizure set in I was at the Keane Wonder Mine turn off, so ...

Re: Edmunds tests Honda Ridgeliner in DV

I got this video from Edmunds. Wow, very informative so thanks for posting this video. A few years ago I drove my old Honda Accord to the Racetrack without a problem after having aired down the tires and driving slowly. It took a while but I got out and back w/o a problem. LOL Now every trip to DV ...

Re: Big Blue Blunder

Perhaps there are some nice narrows between the dryfalls! You're welcome. With your input here I may try hiking and scrambling up the canyon to see if there are some "nice narrows" and past where you turned around, figure out bypasses to the two dryfalls mentioned, retrace my steps back up to the s...

Return route back to AP parking lot

I tried it many years ago but turned around due to hot weather (it was late April). Kauri, just to be clear on my return route, here's an image of the area snapped two days ago from Badwater Road with my routes marked. I do want to return and hike up from the mouth of this large canyon to the huge ...
