Jefe,

Looks like there is a lot of color in the desert this year. Great pictures and report. Last time I was at Scotty's Castle and Death Valley I was a teenager...thanks for the trip back in time. I have been on a couple of wash board roads with the camper; it will rattle the fillings out of your teeth in short order [emoticon]

Jefe,
Lovely pix and great trip report. How tight was the lower end of Titus canyon? It didn't look that bad on the one photo.
Good luck and good camping.

Al,
The one pic deep in Titus Cyn. was about as tight as it got. All the scare about how narrow it is- Just scare. Even your giant, luxurious white box with all the extras could make it through easily. Even a 10 wheel drive army truck could waltz right through.

No cross post, it was in reply to a post above from Big Redneck but no matter as it was not really related to your trip.
