Might see you guys on the backside of your trip. Monitoring 146.460?
I'll be going into Saline on sunday from south Pass
John and I had a great trip. No mechanical issues, no flats and the weather was great until the last day. The wind kicked up something fierce and we said it's time to head home a day earlier than planned. Stovepipe wells had the best fuel prices at $2.91/gal. Panamint and Furnace Creek were stupid expensive. We saw tons of 4Runners and Tacos and only few Landcruisers. Toyotas pretty much dominated the park and the park service also has Tacos in their fleet.
Here're the places we visited:
Warm springs canyon and cabins
Cerro Gordo ghost town
Alancha town for fuel
Saline hot springs
Ubehebee crater and a perimeter hike
Darwin town and Darwin falls hike
Marble canyon, Cottonwood canyon
Saline hot springs
Hotel in Cerro Gordo, very cool wood stove
Plane crash landed the previous Friday, no injuries. Wind flipped it over while it was sitting.
John will have some high res pics once he uploads them to his hosting site. He took a lot of pics of the Milky way around 4am!!
Another great trip with Ali, thanks for heading it up man. Bummer we missed you beno... Ali summed up the trip well.
I took 1k+ pictures, will cull out many of them and need to spend some time processing the survivors, but here is one I hastily had to check out. I have a lot to learn and had several "learning opportunities".
thanks, I had forgotten what a true dark sky with no moon was like... it was spectacular.
That is a very impressive shot. As cool as those dark skies can be in person, it's difficult to capture on "film".

Jealous!!!! Looks like you guys had a great trip.
I've gotten most my pics up here. still working on some of the night ones...
2017 Death Valley - John (j2franklin)
Awesome pics John.
thanks! I'm still struggling with post processing, the pics look significantly darker on smugmug than on my computer (same monitor) let alone changes in monitors, colorspace, etc... oh well.
Looks like I missed you guys by just a day....
Unfortunately, my departure was a bit more difficult.
Well, that sucks. Hopefully you were not hurt, and the truck can be repaired, for a sum of money, of course.
