Halfway through Yosemite - Death Valley trip
« on: February 14, 2018, 01:25:35 AM »

Really enjoying my trip to two wonderful National Parks and a host of other locations along the way.

This evening I made a late decision to leave highway 395 and head up to the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest.  Ths was one hell of a journey driving up the twenty odd miles to an altitude of around 10,000 feet and temperature of 12F/-11C.  With the fierce wind chill factor, it was extremely cold and I only managed to stay about twenty minutes around sunset.

Looking forward to an early start tomorrow from Lone Pine to Death Valley for a couple of nights.

Very nice Bristlecone.

You'll get to warm up in Death Valley.

Sounds like a great trip: Yosemite, the Bristlecones, then DV.
