After spending the night in Beatty and drinking more beer loaded up the next morning headed to Rhyolite ghost town, Titus Canyon, Ubehebe Crater, Racetrack and Lippencott Road to eventually end up back in Saline Valley. Left Beatty pretty early and spent about an hour poking around in the old ghost town.
Left Rhyolite and headed into Titus Canyon. Great ride, perfect weather and only saw one jeep the whole route throught the canyon. A must road to ride if you're in the area.
Popped out of Titus Canyon and slabbed to Scotty's Castle. Had planned on taking one of the tours but had to wait over two hours for the next tour so opted out. Had been on a tour of the castle last year but wanted to do the underground tour this time. Loaded up on some water and headed to Ubehebe Crater for a quick stop and then on to the Racetrack.
Quick stop at the crater and then about 20 miles to TeaKettle Junction over some serious washboard roads. Hauled ass to stay on top and stopped at the Junction to give my ass a rest.
Some pics from the Racetrack. Was getting hot but walked out to an area call the grandstand. Friggin hot as hell out here today. Took some pics and got back to the bike to look for some shade and a break for lunch prior to headed down Lippencott Road.
More to come........................
