After a walk around the Lee Mines area, it will be 13 miles or so hiking down upper-middle Lee Wash and back over the Darwin Plateau. Perfect weather, except for the dust storm down in Panamint Valley below.
I've been looking forward to meeting up with petroglyph-hunter Anthony Edwards of anthromorph.net for today's hike into Upper Centennial Canyon. Now, here we are.
In the north end of the Saline Range, just inside Death Valley Park, lie these two high points with great views. A 6-mile-round-trip hike with about 1300 feet of elevation gain from "Stereo Valley."
I looked down at Eureka Valley yesterday from up above. Now it's time to drive down there!
The Last Chance Range tends to be colorful, and today I'll get to hike through some really interesting parts of it. 12 hiking miles round trip.
I'll hike 13 miles round-trip up into remote Slow Canyon off Eureka Valley. Beautiful, quiet country. It doesn't appear that many people ever come back here.
It's been great seeing Eureka Dunes from many angles as I explore Eureka Valley, but today I want to climb up the dunes and not just see them.
Continuing my curiosity about the Saline Range, I'll hike some of Tin Can Canyon and a bit of Harliss-Brody Canyon today. About 14 miles round-trip.
