Day 3 and 4 were a bit lower key. We moved camp from the cold, windy Panamint Valley down to Furnace Creek, and lounged there in the late morning soaking up some much-needed warmth.

After lunch, we decided to ride Echo Canyon out into Nevada, and then cross back through the Chloride Cliffs, where we'd ridden on our first trip several years ago. We'd heard Echo had some tough sections with steep dry waterfalls, but there was really only one, maybe two sections that could be a bit tricky.

The main tricky dry waterfall. Not difficult, but definitely keep your momentum and stay balanced on the bike.

Heading back through the Chloride Cliffs, we were in quickly failing twilight. The ride in darkness, descending from the Cliffs as the temperature slowly warmed up was magical. Probably not the safest thing in the world, but magical nonetheless.
