Death Valley weekend
    #4150936 - 05/08/05 08:33 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I've been hearing all the fuss about the wildflower explosion this year in Death Valley so I thought I'd take time to get out there and see it for myself.  Spent a couple of days farting around in the desert.  It was fun.

The flowers are definately in bloom this year!!







Took a few pics just for fun.





Her I am at Badwater, the lowest point of dry land in the western hemisphere.  The peak in the background is Telescope Peak at 11,034 feet (I've climed it a couple times).



A typical desert campsite for me (this is Panamint Valley).  Pretty boring, huh? :smirk:  Actually, its awesome.  Some of the best stargazing you will ever do!!



I about choked when I had to get some fuel here. But then I came across another gas station 60 miles down the road and was glad I filled up when I did...the other station was $3.24 for regular!! :eek:



It was a nice relaxing weekend.  And the weather was awesome.  The temps are 10-15 degrees below average right now over there.  Its usually into triple digits by this time of year there, but it was beautiful this weekend.  Glad I did it before it got too hot and all the flowers died!

Holy shit, your gas is expensive. I got some for 2.05 a gallon a few days ago!  :eek:

Cool pictures, by the way.  :thumbup:

We got alot of rain in AZ this year (already above the yearly average). The flowers are beautiful here in the PHX area. On the downside tho, it means the fire season will be pretty bad. Have a good trip. Filled the tank up today it was $2.35 a gallon

Great pics! I'd love to see the Salton Sea area about now.
It's amazing how such beauty can spring from such desolation, isn't it...

It isn't? I was just going by a National Geographic article I read on it. Of course, they have the best photographers that can make anything look beautiful...

trust me...my dad has a lot out there that his poor mother
was swindled into purchasing.

it's a fucking shit hole.

nice from afar, maybe, but not a destination, by any means.

national geographic can make my hairy ass look naturally
beautiful....
