Panamint Valley 4/26, 27

Post by Tracker » Sun Apr 27, 2008 10:29 pm

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:

That picture was posted only a month-and-a-half ago, and already it doesn't look that much worse than we are paying here in Glendale. Unleaded Regular at my local discount station is now $4.60. I wonder what Furnace Creek is like right now.

The prices in Furnace creek are only 5 to 10 cents higher for reg unleaded than they are here in San Luis Obispo.The one positive thing about paying that much for gas at Panamint Springs is that when you need it at least its there to buy.I topped off there once before going on in to Saline Valley and it was worth the Peace of mind knowing I was starting out with as full of a tank as possible.

Speaking of Panamint Valley... yesterday I was on the ridge north of Snow Canyon and I couldn't see Telescope Peak! The smoke from a fire in the southern Sierras was quite thick! I couldn't actually smell it, but it had quite an impact on visibility!!! TRIP PICS: http://www.blackturtle.us/DV_SITES/SNOW/
