Re: Pictures

Why do they care if you post pictures as long as you don't say where they are? Because people aren't dumb and can figure out where things are based on geological features. I for one specifically found an Indian site based on one trip report from the net. Nothing was said about the location but I us...

I had planned to be in Saline this week but both passes are snowed in and I don't want to do Lippincott. Had my fill just after new years.

Lee Flat is a great place. Another wonderful aspect of the variety that is Death Valley. Getting to Nelson Cabin in a full size long bed may be tricky once you get up to the cabin. It is pretty tight up there. Also temps get cool up at that altitude during the winter.

...Finally, the book, Silver Stampede by Neill C. Wilson also shows a picture of the original road up Surprise Canyon. The book was published in 1937 and may be hard to find. Thank you for the book reference. I'd not known about this book. A new addition to the DV library. Should arrive tomorrow. T...

Thanks. Already picked up the new version. I like the cover from the old one better though. But we all know a book should not be judged by its cover.
