Laugh Greetings from Saline Valley Hot Springs ...



Ran into the gang from BAARC in Death Valley at Saline Valley Hot Springs ... BigNastybrp, Just Paul and their gals riding bad-ass two-up down South Pass and Zeegman ... Puddles, too! A BRP, 990, 520 and two KLRs ... The hard cases were on their way over Steel Pass and the KLRs off for (easy) North Pass ... I know I got the Honda and Kawasaki models right, anyway ...

BAARC ... we may not post much, but we do ride ... ha!

Here's a map and a few pics from Cary and my Thanksgiving trip:



About 1200 miles, according to Google, and five days of riding ...


The Wizard pool, in Upper Hot Springs ... 102 degrees ...



Camp on the road to Steele Pass, looking downhill and west ...


Thanksgiving Pot-Luck on the lawn at the Lower Oasis ... starts every year at 2pm, don't be late, the line for (lots of) food is long ... a fun party with lots of nice people ... not many motorcycle people, though, I think ADVers stay at Panamint on Thanksgiving ...


Bat Sign ...


Heading north up to North Pass ...


Lunch in the Alabama Hills, close by Lone Pine ...





Camping in the Temblor Range, Hurricane Ridge, Carrizo Plain National Monument ...

Perfect weather, no wind ...

See you around the campfire,
