Bev? Different angle, different growth on rocks but it could be.

My Dad used to say, "A pack of cigarettes and a gallon of gas have always been the same price. It might take one or the other a while to catch up but it will."
It must be time for a tobacco shortage or new tax or something.

I think the answers to your questions depend on what you like to do and how you do it. Randsburg itself isn't a big deal as far as a tourist type attraction. But the general area has a lot to see if you take your time and have a vehicle capable of taking you off the beaten path. Lots of things to se...

Gotta get our energy from somewhere, folks. An acre or so per oil well, or 10,000 acres of "clean" solar energy, or dam up a few more rivers for hydroelectric, or build some more nuclear plants...take your pick. I pick: "All of the above". The only other choice is to keep buying our energy from pot...

Great shots. It's odd the way the places can sometimes look better in your pictures than they do in person.

:soap: I won't say how I really feel about people who feed wildlife - the root of the problem runs too deep to change many people's minds. But every now and then we get to see why feeding only hurts the critter being fed. Whether it's a bobcat at FC or something like below- nothing good can come fro...

Panamint Valley 4/26, 27

The weather was perfect for just about anything one might want to do this past weekend. From a perch high up in the Argus range, the valley looked like it was dotted with lights all night long from the crowd of creeping vehicles. I feel for the tourists and the unwise who needed fuel at PSR: http://...

The most dangerous thing for kids is to be kept in town and shielded from the world so that they are "protected". Take 'em everywhere you go and teach 'em everything you know. There's no greater reward for a parent than watching what happens when you do this. :idea:

There is another spot of orange that I haven't had a chance to look at yet but from a distance it is very impressive. If you were on a high spot, let's say the hills across the street from the reserve, and you were to look north, it would be about 10 miles north and 4 or 5 miles west. As just a roug...

Start 'em young, and teach them love of the desert and respect for it, and how to behave out there and what to watch out for and you'll be fine.
My feelings exactly. If you go to the hot springs though, you may have to explain why the boys are holding hands. :shock:

The truth is, if all we know is that which is in a newspaper story we know very little if anything about what actually happened. I kind of have a hard time believing that you are knowledgeable about these subjects or you would know a bit more about asset forfeiture / evidence conversion procedures. ...

While the money may be tainted, the ethics of the police taking it is also criminal. There is no excuse for police corruption. Stay away from Beatty if you care about your constitutional rights!!!

It will take a congressional act to change the 1994 Death Valley National Park boundary designation, and that is what a group of concerned citizens are hoping will happen. :soap: Those boundaries are accomplishing exactly what they were designed to do when they were established.
