Saline Valley, October, 2013

This is a video of me going into Saline Valley via Grapevine Canyon, from the south pass.

Thank you for sharing this.

We're actively trying to plan a trip there soon. Are those roads representative of what you encountered?

Re: Saline Valley, October, 2013

Thanks for the complements. It is a great place to visit. Not to hard to get in or out. I would say high clearance good tires and time on your hands. Need to drive slow.

This next video, "Saline Valley Departure" will show the road conditions better than the other two. I would like to figure out where to put cameras to show the real roughness of a road or the angle of a climb. I will just keep working on it.

Enjoy,
Woody

Re: Saline Valley, October, 2013

Thank you for posting those, Woody. Oh, how I miss those days of my youth wandering around DVNM (as it was called in those days) in my 4WD Toyota. Truly, a beautiful part of our country...
