    Heading to Mojave on Wednesday (Nov 10th) afternoon, then Death Valley area, until Sunday 14th. I'll be on the Westside of the park if anyone wants to hook up for a ride.

    Thanks Josh

    fyi-No cell service at pennanmint springs anymore unless you have "Altell". I'm in space T-17.

    Rode Swansea-Cerro Gordo yesterday, bad section of trail 4 miles in. Would not try and drive a suv up it alone, narrow rocky, and a long way down. Pics coming soon.

    thanks Josh

    Back from trip. Awesome time. TW worked like a champ, even though it protested quite a bit above 9k feet.







    Down in Southpark Canyon after climbing Pleasant Canyon to Roberts Pass. Check out the trail surface.







    About 4 miles out of Swansea on the way to the Salt Tram ruins.







    About 16 miles up the road the salt tram ruins.

    Right on Janet. Glad to help. I'll be back in Death Valley, in Febuary camping with an Element group at Furnace Creek. I'll have the TW with me for sure.

    On Saturday I went up into White Mountains. Mazourka Peak





    Over a couple little ridges and through some snow to Papoose Flat, looking west.

    Heading back down to the town of Independence.





    Sunday went for an early ride into Alabama Hills, nice backdrops. Filled a lot of movies out there back in the day.

    Bikerjosh, those are some pretty cool pictures. I am always interested in finding old structures out in the desert or woods. Those salt tram ruins are pretty neat. I assume they were for salt mines? Any history of them that you are aware of? Last year I watched a video of the 20 mule team that hauled out Borax from those types of mines. Were you near them also. Anyway thanks for sharing photo's of your desert adventure. If I was closer I'd love a ride out in the desert (not is summer though) ha ha!
