Met up with a friend who winters in Az. and was headed back home to Oregon in Death Valley. Weather was great except the last day as the winds came up with 50mph gust so had to hang in the camper all day. we road on and off just exploring as most dirt roads are still closed due to storms and the park service doesn't seem to be in a rush to take care of them very fast, that is how a ranger we talked to described it. We camped on BLM land on the south end of DV, explored Tecopa area, rode the pavement all the way to Furnace creek and back, then off road 1 day to some where out in the middle of no where. Had a great time then headed home, only 3hrs for me. The wild flowers are not there at all, very few. Joshua Trees are blooming here at home since I left. Was 30 Monday morning when I left DV so Spring isn't there yet.
