Thank you very much - I enjoy your pictures, identifications, and narratives. Great trip reports and a wonderful antidote to cold rainy day in the midwest (I'm just glad it's rain and not snow yet again).

Wow. Just wow. Thank you very much for posting these pictures.
I've been trying to get a picture to show here in order to post a trip report, but without any luck. I am not very computer-savvy and don't have a lot of the equipment others have; for example, no smart phone to take pictures. I'm using a digital Lumix camera that stores pictures on an SD/HC card. I...
On our way to Sidewinder this morning, about ten miles south of 190 on Badwater road, there was a gentleman on the west side sitting at a grand piano. Yes, on the shoulder of the road! When we returned seven hours later, he was still there. He said he was playing music from sunrise to sunset, but it...
Arrived and checked in at the ranch (whatever you call it). The parking lot looks emptier than usual; maybe that's why the desk clerk offered to extend my stay at $99 a night. I'm considering it. Another person at the pool said they took the offer, but that it's only if you already have a reserved s...
Thank you - I don't use Facebook and don't have an account there, so this was very helpful to me. Now my son has texted saying they've had three days of rain in Ridgecrest. I'm wondering if Lake Manly is back at Badwater. Should I bring the inflatable kayak just in case?
Hello all - woke up this morning in Nebraska to another inch of snow. Cheered myself up with the fact that I'm planning to go back to DV next weekend (24-27). I'm staying at the Oasis ranch, since the campgrounds seem out of the picture, but I was wondering about the parking lots at Keane Wonder Min...
I'm unfortunately late in discovering Death Valley, so I'm nowhere near as hardy as most of you here (being mid-60s female). Luckily there's still plenty of hikes I can do, and I enjoy every one. In surfing the web I ran across a company called Wildland Trekking which offers a four day Cottonwood Ma...

I was hoping to post a trip report about hiking Telescope Peak with my son this month, but the road was too washed out for us to reach the kilns, let along the trail head up further. Drat. As a consolation prize, I spent a couple of days at Capitol Reef National Park. I managed to get one of their f...

My husband, knowing my fondness for the Death Valley area, brought my attention to this site offering Cerro Gordo for sale: cerrogordomines.com I'm thinking I should buy a lottery ticket tomorrow; that would be my only chance. While we were looking on Google Earth at the nearest town, Keeler, we saw...
