SeanReedyAnnual Winter/Spring Ritual  Sucess!


It is now more rare to be away for more than a year than it is to visit twice in a year.

jkantolineAnniversary Camping Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 10, 2014


Not really a mountain but it was a climb and a scramble. Total hike was about 4 hours, great trails and views.

dino61111Bright light, vast area  Sucess!


Years ago I drove through DVNP. Made a point to walk around the Devil's Golf course, and of course the low point. What I most remember is that it was already 95* by nine in the morning! It was hard to tell if it was hotter with the windows open or closed! A bleak, forbidding but beautiful region. I wish I could have seen a rain, that would have been something.

Visited DV almost ten years ago now. The thing I remember most is that it was raining....really hard! I suppose this doesn't happen often. Amazing place.

technicolorNHHere with GF  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 22, 2010


Didn't get to do too much because the GF wasn't much of a hiker but we still explored many of the trails around Zabriskie Point and the overlook on top of Badwater Basin. It was somewhat cool in Vegas (68) but a toasty 88 degrees at Badwater itself. I want to go back for Telescope Peak.

Drove through Death Valley on the way to the Sierras. We stopped at Badwater Basin to add the lowest point in the country to our list of cool things in life! Go figure, 2 days later, we were standing on top of the highest point, Mt Whitney, too! I was nervous our car would break down driving through there, to be honest. 110 degrees!!

reboylesHigh/Low Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 24, 2001


I had a set of National Geo maps that showed the highest point (Whitney) in the continental U.S. and the lowest in the western hemisphere (Bad Water) so we cooked up a trip to do both. One day we were on top of Whitney where it was near zero in the morning and a day later we were sipping beers in shorts and t-shirts while enjoying the 90 degree temperatures in Death Valley.

For the most part we drove through it after climbing Mount Whitney but went for Golden Canyon which is a beautiful area.
