I recently retired and the weather is getting cold here in Kennewick, so I decided to head south. I'm also a member on ADVrider.com, and with some research found that a group from the SW was having a meetup in Pahrump last weekend. Another group was having a ride east of Bend, Oregon the previous weekend, so I loaded up the van and headed south! (mrs. dhally hasn't retired yet, so it was a solo trip...)
Here's the camp at East Fort Rock OHV staging area east of Bend. There was also a Husqvarna ride that weekend, and they all had toy haulers.
Heading south out of East Fort Rock I found some untracked gravel.
Summer Lake Hot Springs is a nice sunny spot with storms all around, and Winter Ridge in the background.
After two days of driving with an overnight at the Churchill County Fairgrounds in Fallon, I saw Death Valley for the first time ever. Need to return and explore more.
There was a "49er" campout at Furnace Creek - looks like a city! I stayed at Texas Springs just up the hill.
Here's Hole in the Wall
I suppose I could have driven the van up here, but that's what the bikes are for!
And Echo Canyon
Picked up a nail somewhere and had to practice my tube changing skills...
I didn't get many shots in Pahrump - we stayed at the City Park right in town. I did go on an all-day guided ride with a stop for lunch at this place. I have no idea where we were, except it was SE of Pahrump.
