    December before the Holidays is a very slow time in DV. Spring and summer is the when the park is busy. People come from around the world to experience triple digit heat, screw that- I can stick my head in an oven and get the same effect. Now is the best time in the park.

    I'm meeting a bunch of aging miscreants in Kernville on March 7th and we'll head to DV the next day. They've been making this trip for over 30 years and they've let me tag along with them since 2007. We're staying at the Oasis, formerly Furnace Creek Ranch.

    Good looking S10. Picture location? Near Ballarat?

    Not sure what the road is called but this is north of Ballarat, north of 190 in the Panamint Valley.

    36.364146,-117.394992 is an estimate to where it is.

    Tried going north into the mountains on this 2 track and it got steep and rocky. Had to turn around and come back down.

    Eye in the Needle going up Echo Canyon. I've been up that road 3 times but this was the first time I saw it because I stopped and looked back west for my buds. You won't see it going up hill.
