Pinnacles to Trona fuel stop

Climbed up Trona pass heading to Panamint Valley

Took a little jeep trail detour on top of the pass

Here our fearless leader and a high quality sweeper discuss our demise


Just kidding, I thought the route was great!

some riders opted out of the section, folks were getting good and tired by this point

First a stop in Beatty, NV for fuel and grab some grub for on trail lunch stop



Long, loney highway heading out of NV to Titus Canyon road



Jonasjapan

tonyj and his clean, clean, clean Trophy GS



moe.ron improving with every mile

the farther we go along Titus Canyon the more and more beautiful it becomes
to the point of distraction the terrain is jaw dropping in it's colors and texture

can you find the motos?




I think moe.ron approves

You didn't spot the tea kettle I left? Seems it didn't catch anyone's attention and it even has my name and ADV on it. I've seen 5 or 6 pictures now and LOST is spotted but not the happy little Ladybug. Fail

Loving your report, your photos do a good job of showing the beauty of DV.

Keep it coming.
