Fantastic Dayhike loop up a pretty canyon with plenty of dryfall scrambling, a visit to two major mine sites, and a descent down on of the longer trails in the national park. Any issues or concerns are diligently described in Michel Digonnet's: "Hiking Death Valley". Only recently restored and reopened to the public.

I'm not usually a big mine ruin person but this day rocked.


I take way too many canyon pics, I know, but complete set here:
