Day 4 was another lighter day, exploring to the south of Furnace Creek up around Greenwater, then crossing over to Nevada via Deadman Pass before looping back to camp.





Exploring in the hills west of Greenwater, I stopped for a break and noticed oil spewing all over my engine and swing arm. Yikes. Luckily, it was just a loose oil filter cover, and I hadn't lost very much yet. Lucky save.

Heading up over Deadman's Pass. A long, fast gradual climb out of the valley and into Nevada, but be wary of deep washouts that can crop up almost unseen.







Yeeah!



















Wes conquering the pass, and literally riding his a$$ off.

Tomorrow is the long loop - truck to Scotty's Castle, then through Crankshaft Junction to the Eureka Dunes, over Steel Pass down to the Hot Springs camp, along Saline Valley road, back over Lippincott and past the Racetrack, Ubehebe Crater, and to the truck at Scotty's Castle.
