Episode 18 – Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes

Here it is. The Grand Finale. Sensual sand dunes and personal love stories about them. Also, sand dune rolling, fancy hiking skirt, nutella at the top, and a refreshing ending in Stovepipe Wells.

As of the time I publish this video, I am less than 18 hrs away from taking off on the next adventure … the Pacific Northwest Trail (Montana to the Olympic coast in Washington). More adventures to come!

For a while, I’ll be making these videos on my phone. I’m obviously not taking my laptop on the trail, I need room for bear spray, food and other life necessities… so I won’t be posting these “video link” stories. I will, however, still be posting them on Youtube. So, if you’ve enjoyed them, Now would be an excellent time to click on the YouTube Channel (Melissa Thebobcat Wyld) and SUBSCRIBE. Please and thank you 🙂

Thank you for watching, for sharing this journey with me.

XOXO!

Episode 16 – The Badwater Basin

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.

Episode 15 – Orange Poppies Superbloom

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!

Episode 14 – The Tire Ordeal part 2

Part 2 of the tire ordeal. I’m not out of the woods (desert) yet!

Episode 10 – From the Racetrack to a cool old truck

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 🙂

Episode 9 – Ubehebe to the Racetrack

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.

Episode 8 – Eureka Dunes to Ubehebe Crater

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

Episode 7 – The Salsbury Pass

A short movie about a chill day among beautiful canyons filled with flowers.

🙂

Episode 6 – The Singing Eureka Sand Dunes

Eureka Dunes. One of the few sand dunes in the world that hums, or sings, or booms, or just makes a really weird noise when you press on them. hmmmmmmmm. First 15 seconds of this video. … the rest is about climbing the dunes and some cool bug I found.

Thank you for watching! 🙂

Episode 2 & 1/2 – Oh, the stormy places I’ll go (bonus episode)
