Death Valley

A Weekend Trip
Part 2



Nov. 10, 2012

Having slept well in our heated white cocoon, not wanting to get out from under such warm conditions. At last we must rise just as the sun tries to climb its way above the mountain peaks. First one up makes the coffee, my turn, the aroma floating throughout our home on wheels gets the blood moving. With a mug full I stepped out for some morning photos while Julie does her magic in such a tiny kitchen.

None of our neighbors have yet risen as I go about taken some photos.One of our neighbor had a nightly visitor.

The temperature had dropped down to 24 degrees last night, as I wandered around shooting pictures one of the other campers had risen to start a morning fire. Julie had breakfast ready and we made our morning plans to take a look at some of the Lippincott Mine ruins on the near by hillside.

Parking our rig by the yellow tanker, the view was awesome from up here. A majestic view of the Racetrack Valley laid before us. Cottonwood Mountains had a good layer of overnight fallen snow on it.

Climbing a little higher up is a foundation of what is left of a home.

We didn’t take the road to the mine itself, for it was time to head on over to Lippincott Pass.

Stopping at the other campers wishing them well, for they froze their buns off last night.

Here I depart from my usual narrative, I’ve linked two set of videos (click photo links) that show our crossing of Lippincott Pass and all the way to SR190, which we took to Panamint Springs. Enjoy the videos they’re 24 minutes total time

Nice job getting your rig down Lipincott Road. I have been down that a couple of times but not in my camper. Last time to the Racetrack we camped on the slabs by the mine. Great views from up there.

An article in today's San Diego paper officially declared Death Valley to be the hottest spot on earth. Hmmmph. When I was there, the weather was more like you have experienced. Wannabe DV travelers, take layers!

Thanks for sharing your trip with us.
