    Panamint Valley, Saline Valley, Death Valley and the surrounding areas are some of my favorite local places to get Lost. I enjoy visiting as often as possible and usually I have a few photos. :)
    Here's a thread to share images we all took while in or around Death Valley, maybe a full ride report isn't in order but you'd like to share some of your favorite photos, here's a thread to do it.
    The new ADVrider forum software automatically scales photos to your browser window size, no more blown up huge photos. I recommend posting the highest resolution photos you can. If your computer monitor has lots of pixels it really makes the photos look much better. Also if you enjoy a photo(s) someone posts, give it a "like", it's always nice to know people appreciate you taking the time to post up. :)


    HERE is the Death Valley Riding Conditions thread for Death Valley riding discussions.




    Get Lost!








    I'll start out with some recent photos I made while riding out a storm in Panamint Valley and then coming back on a lighter bike to explore the ever changing landscape.

    Great pictures, have been all over that area, recognize some of those sites.

    What amazes me ..... that anything can live in that area.

    Looks like you caught it after a rain storm, rare indeed.

    The people that had to push through that area by wagon train must have been overwhelmed with the heat and terrain. I often wonder how they were able to keep the horses and ox alive let alone themselves.

    brilliant pics!

    i've been coming to dv almost every year for the last 30 years. strange, i never see it as beautiful as you guys showed on your pics. i guess, my eyes and mind just wander all over (or keeping my bike upright...hahaha) rather than stop and focus on one and appreciate the awesomeness.

    thanks finn for starting the thread and contributors. now we have one single place for everyone to cherish what we normally take for granted.
