Upper Scotty’s Canyon new DV hiking report released

Our newest Death Valley hiking report features a full exploration of Upper Scotty’s Canyon.  It was an extremely challenging but incredible journey featuring great canyon scenery, wildlife sightings, and the lush greenery of Timpapah Spring.  This report marks the first time that the upper portion of Scotty’s Canyon has ever been documented by way of a hiking report and photographs.  We hope you enjoy the report and remember to please stay safely out of this area.  To view the new report, check out report #146 on the Main Page or click on the link below.

We found lots of coyote gourds while exploring the canyon

Upper Scotty’s Canyon hiking video

Today I am releasing a short 11-minute video that goes along with my upcoming Upper Scotty’s Canyon hiking report.  The video showcases the route in a slightly different way than a regular hiking report with photographs, so I am sure you will enjoy it.  I don’t film these all the time because they just take up too much time during a hike and really slow down our group.  One word of caution: I do not recommend anyone to follow in our footsteps and do this hike.  Two of the three in our group suffered injuries during the hike because the terrain was so challenging, especially while bypassing the 3 major dry falls.

Head BM new DV hiking report released

Today I am releasing a brand new Death Valley hiking report for Head BM. This is a hiking loop that I created which visits two scenic canyons and the second highest named summit of the Quail Mountains. (The Quail Mountains were added to Death Valley NP on March 12, 2019.) Along with the abundant natural beauty, we also found aircraft and Dart parts, a tarantula, and two wild burros.  To view the new report, visit the link below or check out report #176 on the site’s Main Page.
