Lotsa snow, wind, and cold in Death Valley!

My ride out began from O.C. I hooked up with Francisthepig on his 800GS and we rode 395/Trona/Panamint Valley out to PSR Thursday afternoon. It was a cold and windy ride, but thankfully, no precipitation!



On Friday morning, I hooked up with Liorsmotoride and his friend, Damon for a ride to the Charcoal Kilns, Ubehebe crater, Teakettle junction, and Scotty's Castle. I've been to D.V. several times since 2002, and have never seen so much snow on almost every mountain range around Death Valley.

On Saturday, I packed for home. Lior was still busy helping inmates fix bike and car? problems before I left. I chatted with Cathy before departing, while Lior helped out. Lior finally was able to leave for a ride to Darwin and we parted ways.





Many thanks to Joel and all the volunteers who made this event possible.
