Looks like a Moto Guzzi engine
I don't think MtW can be seen from DV. It can easily be seen from Lone Pine on 395. You will see two fingers, and then a mountain rising adjacent to them.
As long as you are there take a ride on Tuttle Creek Rd, from which you can also see MtW. About 1/3 in from the right edge of this pic you can see it:
While you are in the area, ride on up to the top of Horseshoe Meadows Rd. Haha, thank me later.
If it's been rainy recently though, be prepared for ice, as it goes to 10k feet.
This pic is looking down into Owens Valley from H M R, about 3/4 of the way up, due to ice:
'Ducati Engine' part is the air compressor.
Engine is on the right. Looks like an old flathead 6.
(But you probably already knew that.)
We meet in DV, errr, actually Beatty, once a year in Nov.
From Telescope Peak MTW and Badwater are visible. The lowest spot in the northern hemisphere and the highest in the lower 48.
Thanks for that. For those that want to experience those views, it will require a 14 mile, 7 hour hike, from 8k-11k ft with a degree of difficulty of: Difficult. Keep in mind you will need a fairly clear day to see across those 60-70 miles.
You're welcome. A long hike yes, difficult depending on ability. Most hikers don't qualify it as difficult. DV has lots of "difficult" hikes.
The Mt. Washington difficulty is the altitude, and the last leg is along a narrow spine with a LONG drop off. Also you need to be down off top before noon when the daily thunderstorms roll in.
There are daily thunderstorms in Death Valley Nat. Park?
There is potential for seasonal thunderstorms.
Yeah and the occasional BIG F'ING FLOOD. Scotty's Castle might be open in 2020.
The Steel Pass/Dedeckera Canyon area had a significant rain event within the last two years. Probably a summer monsoon. Lots of changes in some canyons I hike up there and in the roadway. Nothing to dramatically change the actual through travel though.
Reading one of the posted signs explaining the alluvial fans was an eye opener for me. Those monstrous runoff areas caused by epic flooding must have taken many thousands of events which only happen 'occasionally'. Eons of flooding and they're everywhere in DV, a pretty stunning show of the force of nature and a hint of the massive amounts of time involved.
There's one AF spanning this photo behind my RV, it's huge and they're everywhere. Looking east from Panamint Springs.
We took a little journey up to the old Army Airforce field at Rice Calif (north of Blythe) to checked it out. This was a few years back before I sold my Blue RT. Silly me!
Yesterday at Panamint Springs. The owner of the property is also a pilot.
Rush hour, eh?
The pilot went down the middle of the road multiple times. I was in the restaurant eating a late lunch and I watched him go down the road a couple times while I ate and then headed out when I was finished. Got to film him for the last 5 minutes of his flying until he brought it home.
No pun intended but it was dead in Death Valley yesterday. I was railing along the 190 away from the small communes and nobody was there to give a damn!
Wheelying over every sharp rise, scrubbing tire edge to edge through the bends. It was magnificent if not a bit cool. One of my favorite rides out there.
