I just had to return and complete the dream. The dream of hiking across Badwater, not in a storm, not in the dark (See Episode 2). Miles of sun, salt, silence and perfect solitude.
Here’s the most beautiful episode yet. No people, just flowers (and the Catmobile).
I received a notice from YouTube that the musis I used is copyrighted. In the days to come, I might have to change it. But, until then … here is the original version, with the perfect music!
Happy flower viewing!
Part 2 of the tire ordeal. I’m not out of the woods (desert) yet!
If you’ve been watching, you’ll remember that in Episode 4, two lovely Canadians told me about some warm springs up canyon, about 11 miles off the West Side Rd … Right before getting on the third section of my Death Valley Hike, I decided to go soak in these warm springs for a few hours … That didn’t go so well for me.
This is a two part story. Here’s is part 1:
Here’s a little bit of green and watery goodness. An interlude from the parched Death Valley beauty. It’s a short one today, but it’s the first time the go pro goes under water. Pretty special. I love that little camera so much!
A 22 mile descent through Marble Canyon, that should have taken a lot less time than it did. Gorgeous rocks today. Also giant caterpillars, water that disappears and a surprise ride.
Thank you for watching.
This is the end of section 2 – and I’m about to get myself adventured out. I didn’t know it was possible.
The aftermath of almost quitting yesterday. Blisters, butt-chafing, bad attitude, Cottonwood mountains, pie, naps, crows, and one cool old truck. Not necessarily in this order.
A rough day, but there is so much beauty out there. I have no complaints.
Thank you for watching.
If you’d like, you could subscribe to the Youtube channel. Once on the trail, I might not have access to WordPress. But more movies there will be. I just received a harness for the GoPro … it just gets better 🙂
Here we go … whackiest episode yet. Christmas caroling, alien abduction, holes in my socks, ode to my umbrella, and my butt kicked. Today is the day I quit. For real. The desert crazies have settled in.
It felt so good to be back on trail after a few zeros to resupply.
ome beaaaauuuuutiful landscapes in this one. My goodness! (I’m bias, I know. Death Valley is my love, but still). Also, in this one, trail friends, cyanobacterias, disco, a rare Joshua Tree flower, and more sand dunes.
Thank you for watching! XOX
