West Side Road
I started thinking about my plans for the day. I could make it to Furnace Creek easy enough, but then what? A noisy crowded campground if I could find a site? Camping is not allowed on West Side Road, but I notice the signs at the start of each side road saying no camping for the next 2 miles.
So I rode up Johnson Canyon Road for more than 2 miles and found a a place to spend the evening.
It was nice and warm here.
Look Closely. A bird is buzzing my tent.
Badwater Basin is visible across the valley.
The sun sets over the Panamint Range
and I watched the shadows crawl across the valley and up the Amorgosa Range
It was a serene evening alone in Death Valley.
