    Made it to Reno. That was a long drive. Saw many interesting sights along the way but couldn't stop. Looks like we'll bedriving through Lone Pine so I'll be sure give an eyes right to the Alabama hills and Ansel's iconic image!

    Andrew,

    Just take it easy on the road from Lone Pine into the park...it is rather steep and windy. Have a great trip!
    Best regards,

    Wimps!-- take the road from Big Pine to Eureka Valley to Death Valley! That way your martinis (and everything else in your vehicle) will definitely be shaken, not stirred!!!LOL!!!

    We're all wimps! It's the people who do the midsummer marathon from Badwater clear up to Whitney Portal who get a good workout. ... then a celebratory BBQ, presumably with already fully cooked human flesh!

    Been there, done that, didn't know any better at the time.

    Made it! 34C..... but it's a dry heat! Think I'll take it easy and start tomorrow. Got lots of time.

    I just did it (again, but the last time was perhaps 20 years ago). I was a little disappointed with what I found at the Eureka Valley Sand Dunes. Becoming part of the National Park system did not improve it much...but perhaps it would be worse under the old system, with the increase use and all. A lot of footprints on the dunes, lots of motorcycles and 4WD doing a big loop that passes right by the dunes...did not see that 20 years ago. More fighter jets than before, too. So it goes!

    Andrew -- looks like the weather might be cooler the rest of the week -- with the possibility of some clouds, too! Should be great!

    Staying in a room at Stovepipe Wells. Very nice but wiresless is poor. Sitting in Denny's at Beatty after spending the afternoon at Rhyolite. Made some exposures. Sure was windy! Clouds rolled in and lost the sun for a bit. Went to Zabriskie Point earlier in the dat. Amazing place. Will check it out again tomorrow again. So far it's been a good trip. Can't believe how many Canucks are here. I actually saw someone I know!
