Siesta time on the Panamint Dunes. Desert
Survivors on the "Sidewinding into the Saline Valley Car Camp" March
2017 enjoy the warmth of the mid-day winter sun in Death Valley
National Park. The trip participants explored the Panamint
Valley, Lee Flat (with its outstanding petroglyphs) and finally ended
up at the Saline Valley warm springs––where everyone washed away three
days of desert dirt. A splashing good time was had by all.
You can do this too. Become a
of Desert Survivors and join us on our wilderness adventures.
