Today I get to hike another canyon in the Last Chance Range that I haven't been to previously. 14 miles round-trip with about 2200 feet of elevation gain.
19.1 miles round-trip with just under 4000 feet of elevation gain. No stray balloons found on this amazing hike!
These small dunes sit serenely behind some low rocky hills at the base of the Saline Range. Easy 10.5 hiking miles round-trip with about 750 of elevation gain.
The surreal landscape of this part of the Last Chance Range is my welcoming host for the day. 5.5 hiking miles with about 2000 feet of elevation gain.
Food, fun, drinks, and camping with friends, plus a 5-mile hike in the Resting Spring Range and visits to China Ranch date farm and Tecopa Hot Springs.
... with stops at Hole in the Wall and Grotto Canyon.
The excellent Friendsgiving meet-up ends and I venture out on an easy solo hike today. 11.3 hiking miles with around 1900 feet of elevation gain.
Storm clouds move in, so I cancel my hike, but viewing a dramatic dust storm and then hiking an unplanned 7 miles around Panamint Dry Lake all end this trip nicely.
