Grapevine Peak new DV report released

This evening, we are releasing our brand new hiking report documenting the route to Grapevine Peak, the highest peak in the Grapevine Mountains.  This report contains a lot of helpful tips for future hikers and also showcases the spectacular views all around during the hike and from the summit.  To check out the new report, visit report #120 on the Main Page or click on the link below.  I am hoping to return to Death Valley this November to resume hiking.

Wahguyhe Peak new DV report released

Today we have the surprise release of a brand new Death Valley hiking report.  Last weekend, I took a short notice trip to Death Valley to spend the weekend in beautiful Phinney Canyon.  This visit resulted in two brand new Death Valley reports.  The first of these has now been released and it covers Wahguyhe Peak.  To read the new report, check out report #119 on the site’s Main Page or click on the link below.

Devils Golf Course new DV report released

My final new report to come from the March trip is for Devils Golf Course.  Usually viewed as a tourist sightseeing destination, I set out on a quest to find and document all of the salt pools in the area.  And I was very successful, which made for an enjoyable (but quite challenging) afternoon.  I think you will enjoy the new fully updated report on this interesting area.  To see the new report, visit report #169 on the Main Page or click on the link below.

Telephone Canyon & Jalopy Canyon new DV report released

Today we have released a brand new report on Telephone Canyon located within the Tucki Mountain area.  This new report replaces the old report (which was badly in need of an update) and contains many brand new pictures.  In addition, a bonus part of the Telephone Canyon report features another hike that starts at the same parking area and goes to a place that we are calling Jalopy Canyon.  If you follow this Blog, you may recall the post during my March DV trip where I thought I had found a previously unknown Model T while on this hike.  However, I have now learned that the abandoned car was not a Model T, but it was actually a 1918 Briscoe Touring Car Model B424.  Be sure to check out all the pictures of the newly found Briscoe in the report.  To see the new report for Telephone Canyon and Jalopy Canyon, click on report #8 on the site’s Main Page or you can use the link below.

U2’s Fallen Joshua Tree updated report

Our report on U2’s Fallen Joshua Tree continues to be one of the most popular pages here on the site, regularly being among the Top 5 or Top 10 most-visited each month.  During my recent March trip, I was able to return to this location and thus I have published a fully-updated report with a new introduction, new conclusion, and many new photographs.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy seeing the comparisons between U2’s Tree location in 2008 and 2018.  The updated report can be found at #99 on the site’s Main Page, or you can click on the link below.

Ubehebe Colors Loop new DV report released

Today I am publishing yet another full-length brand new Death Valley hiking report.  Although this hiking route is not meant for the general public as noted within the report, I am happy to share some of the outstanding rarely-seen scenery found within the northern Cottonwood Mountains.  This area is informally referred to as the Ubehebe Colors Loops and shows how we connected four canyons in total to explore a vast area in between Tin Mountain and Ubehebe Crater.  The new report is found at #84 on the site’s Main Page or you can click on the link below.

An incredible large “mud” natural bridge that we discovered during the hike. Note that this natural bridge does not qualify for our semi-official DV Natural Bridges database due to the composition.
