Surviving Death Valley

We pass the dunes...

...and climb a twisty pass to spot the long ride through another hot valley.

The last couple curves...

before crossing Panamint Valley...

and spotting the first view of the snow-capped Sierra Nevadas! Imagine dying of heat and thirst within sight of snow.

We head up the east side of the Sierras on Nine Mile Canyon Road (Sherman Pass).

Still in the rain shadow...

...we go from Joshua Trees... tall pines in the blink of an eye.

Sherman Pass Road

Now we're havin' fun!
