Just took the groms riding at whiting a couple of days ago. Was thinking about the cougars snatching one of them up. Gonna rethink taking them there again anytime soon. Lots of families hiking.

I'll check out the other stories.


I remember Death Valley Germans from the ADV motorcycle website.

There was a member, "Larryboy", from Sacto. Total DV exploration freak. He would solo down to DV a couple of times a year and explore on his lonesome. Some really good ride reports and photos.

This is a guy who has been struck by lightening, twice, while out riding solo. socrazy

With the Govt shutdown it looks like the National parks are going to be or already are closed for the forseeable future. No maintenance/sanitation/security.

Our camping goal this late spring (end of May/early June) is the White Mountains.

East out of Bishop up Silver Canyon road. Bristlecone pine tree country. A lot of really good, off the grid
area to explore. You definitely need a good 4WD to do it though.

Like a scene from Gunga Din.

Dear old dad is a big fan of those old British Empire movies and I got to watch it whenever it would play during those rainy winters in the Pacific NW as a kid.

I was coming down Silver Canyon in my old Subaru (had three creek crossing to get through, each around 2 ft deep), when tearing up/down were some 4x4 yahoos.

On my way down, I had the window open, so I hear 'em coming up and was able to find some room on a 180 degree hairpin turn (got showered by pebbles as they roared past).

Near the first water feature in the 'flats', I had pulled over so I could see if my car could get through (by wading in the creek in my underwear...have to know how deep it is in the middle), and I saw some big horn mt goats, then I hear the 4x4s again. They were coming down! The mt goats bolted, I stumbled quickly out of the creek/road, a few minutes later, they blast past with a horn blast and a wave.

I super much love the Bristlecone areas, and White Mt itself the easiest 14,000+ footer i ever walked to the top of, but man, that 14 miles hike (round trip) sure feels long when you are on the way back through the uphill part of marmot heaven.

Exactly, we visited the movie museum and checked out some of the set locations while we were there.

I was able to go to Zion and Bryce over the New Year Weekend. Did the Narrows, Cruised, camped, short walks in Bryce. IT was beautiful. Cold, but beautiful

How deep was the water in the Narrows?

Get to the junction at Orderville Gulch?

Any photos to share/brag about?
