Overlooking Panamint Valley, to the West of Death Valley


On the floor of Panamint Valley


This is how much of your tire is used on rocky trails:

The picture doesn't do this justice. A cacophony of birds greets you at this WETLANDS in Death Valley.

Wow, awesome pics!! The abundance and variety of natural sights and landscapes in our state never ceases to amaze me. Did you go all by yourself?

Yeah, I was solo for the 5 days. Solo trips several days long are awesome and horrible, almost at the same time!

I came home a day too early, and got to the Sonoma-Marin line (San Antonio Creek/Lake) at midnight on Dec. 30. But I think I've told that story already!

I would be sooo afraid of the trusty Foz breaking down in a remote area like that.

awesome pics, and def. the best time of year to go...death valley has a tendency to live up to its name!

Very beautiful photos. The nice pics made my day. The trip I bet was awesome but I would be too chicken to go solo.

That looks like a great trip MountainBiker!!!:D
I've been through Death Valley many years ago and was awe-struck, unfortunatly, I didn't get to do any side exploring.:(

I do get to go play in the desert around Las Vegas when we go visit my brother-in-law in April, no Subie but he's got an X-Terra.:cool:

Did you meet any other cars/people along this trip?
I ran into a Scout troop on one of the canyon washes. They said there was no way the little subie would make it to the dead end where a hiking trail starts (and where they had left their 4x4s). So I had to try! And I made it through the deep sand and some interesting off-camber hard packed dirt sections, and parked next to their trucks. No drama.

It will only break down if you do something stupid! Not that I haven't done stupid stuff though.:rolleyes:

Their were actually quite a few people around during that week. And since I had good camping gear, food & water, lots of tools and safety and recovery gear, I wasn't too worried. I was cautious of course, and there were two roads that I had to abort since they got too rough for the Forester.

Hmmm, April is when I plan to do another Desert trip. Those X-Terra's are very capable, especially the '05 offroad model!

Feel free to come visit Vegas while we're there, we actually have a few folks meeting us from SF and LA while we're out there. Don't know what my X-Terra availability will be like, but bro-in-law works nights so I can prolly get out some during the day.:D

That is one of my favorites too. And all these shots were taken with a Nikon Coolpix 2200, 2MP and only $100.
