Re: Death Valley 1st week/April

Drove to DV on Tuesday to check out the wildflowers. Lots of new growth. Peak for wildflowers is expected to be around the first week of April. Will be in DV on the 1st and will be staying there for about a week. Not sure where we will be staying but prefer to stay out of NPS campgrounds. Lots of options.

Re: Death Valley 1st week/April

Sierrahawk,
We plan to arrive Tues. 30th and will come into DV via Lone Pine, Panamint valley, Mengel Pass east south east of Ballarat. We plan to set a base camp near the Talc mines off of the westside road. and day hike from there. Probably stay in Lone Pine Monday night since that is a days drive from Santa Rosa. Like you we avoid camp grounds. My van is a white RB window van. If you'd care to meet up pm me. I am unfamiliar with the route over the Panamint Range so traveling together might be nice if you are up for that.
Chris
