Death Valley Episode 3 is now posted on YT

Welcome back to our Death Valley 2017 adventure. In Episode 3 we stop at the lowest point in the continual United States, Badwater Basin, at 282 feet (85.5 M) below sea level. From there it is short drive to our campsite at Warm Springs Mine (Grantham Mine). Then it is past Striped Butte to the Geologists Cabin and a beautiful view down into Butte Valley. From there it is up and over Mengel Pass and on to the Barker Ranch then down Goler Canyon and out to a desert camp. The next day it is back to Stovepipe Wells for the night before heading north to Ubehebe Crater and a campsite at Mesquite Springs. In the morning I headed south to Las Vegas before heading home.

This video answers the question; "Can I get a full size F250 down the steps on Steel Pass?"

The answer is yes with good spotters and a talented driver.
