Picture heavy report.

Day 1 - I started out solo as JD was already out there. First stop was the Trona Pinnacles.








Next up was a 1 mile hike to Darwin Falls. Got to see my first chuckwalla.



Took in the views of Furnace Creek from Aguereberry Point, visited the Eureka Mine area, and Skidoo.

















Then on to the Wildrose Canyon to see the Charcoal Kilns, Mahogany Flats, and Telescope Peak.







Met up with JD at Wildrose campground

Briggs cabin was taken so we drove southwards into Coyote Canyon which is just north of Goler Canyon.



Day 3 - We met up with Steve and headed into Goler Canyon to Butte Valley. We were hoping to grab the Geologist cabin for the night.



We climbed the hill passed Lotus Mine. It was a great, curvy road.









Next up was Charles Manson's hideout at Barker Ranch.



Mengel Pass

We came into Butte Valley and the Geologist cabin wasn't taken (no flag up) and so we grabbed it for the rest of the day and that night. There are other cabins in the area but this one offers the best view of Striped Butte.











The inside library had a special book waiting for us too.

We cruised around Butte Valley after lunch and JD and I hiked to the top of Striped Butte.









Zoomed in view of Geologist cabin from the top of the Butte



We spotted a horny toad on the way down.

Day 4 - Headed home going east along Warm Springs Rd to Warm Springs cabin, Mine, and the Talc Mine. Then along Harry Wade Exit Route to Hwy 127 to Baker. JD stayed behind for 3 more days so we said goodbye to him at West Side Rd.
