Here are some pics from a trip I did with Gary/Joel after xmas 2020...pretty lazy these days to write up much of anything but the trip was good and very, very cold. Had to wear sweater and multiple layers of jackets and gloves almost every day and in bed by 7pm usually just to get warm. We were in the Owlshead Mtns area.

Great pics. I went to Death Valley in October. Managed to pick a weather window that wasn't too cold for Telescope Peak nor too warm for the Racetrack. Right now it definitely looks to be on the cold side for a fair weather camper like me. I'm going to be watching the forecast for another window this spring.

I know this sounds crazy, but after backpacking in the sierras, we spent one night in Lone Pine. Drove out the next day and did Telescope Peak in August. Since your starting at about 8000' it wasn't bad at all. Spent the night on the peak. The most stars I have ever seen !!

Scooter, that sounds amazing. There were a lot of people on the trail to Telescope in October. Probably a lot less in August.

Nice D.Valley trip. I like the miners cabin. Those guys were pretty determined. The lack of reliable water was no doubt a big issue.


Grabbed these on my last trip into Death Valley in 2018
