Here's my wife and her trusty XT225, at the top of Mengal Pass. She trooped to the top like a pro!

Here she is bombing down Death Valley Road on the way to Eureka Dune. The dune, if you've not been, is probably the most impressive sight in Death Valley. I was blown away; staggering the height and grandeur of the place.

In mid-March the flowers were just about at their peak. Riding around Furnace Creek was pretty spectacular. Not Bonanza year for flowers I think, but a good one.

Same trip - the clouds were pretty nice. This one was taken on the west side road just before sunset. This turned into another one of those "after dark adventures".

We took a ride down Greenwater valley; Furnace Creek Wash Road to be precise. I've been down it a few times but this was the first time for Dawn. I took it easy but a few miles into it she was passing me and pushing it pretty good. I thought, "Well she's got this down!" and gunned it!

Greenwater Valley Road leads you (if you like) to Shoshone and the Crowbar Cafe' - a pretty decent hamburger is to be had there. Nice people there. I ate there with my 9 year-old son last June/ July while on a two up tour of Death Valley. He declared the hamburger he'd had there was "the best I've ever had". A ringing endorsement if I've ever heard one.

We toured Scotty's Castle - the underground (technical) tour this time. We'd done the inside last year. It really is a must do in Death Valley if you're at all interested in the history. The Volunteer guide did an excellent job of informing and entertaining us. Heck I even got to operate the water generator! I almost couldn't handle the responsibility.

I taken perhaps 30 pictures of this tree. Every time we visit somehow I sit on the bench below it and snap away...

One part of the castle grounds the tour won't show you is this rustic cabin. Did you know that Scotty conned the then fledgling GM corporation into inventing a satellite dish so that as soon as satellite technology was available he'd be able to watch television!?

Look closely!

Thank you Cubdriver - Yes the KLR is the better bike for DV. No place it can't go with a little elbow grease and a cool head.

Heck though, the first time I went Mrs. Daytonarider was along pillion and we stuck to the street routes only. We had a great time! But exploring the dirt has really opened wide for me!

Cheers
