to take pictures of the
on historic Route 66 in Holbrook Arizona.

We stopped and took a picture of Historic Route 66 sign, and
worlds largest (cough) piece of Petrified Wood.
On our way I saw a sign for
I decided to stop and check it out and was glad I did,
what a site! a giant hole in the ground, and some small meteorites.
My dog got into the mud and I had to wash her off in a
water puddle so she wouldn't dirty the truck.
I also stopped at and went over Hoover Dam
on our way passing into Nevada.
We Arrived in Death Valley after dark. I got a little confused
turned around in Las Vegas, and almost ended up in Utah,

Day 5 I got up at 5:30am.
The sun was not up yet, but I was. My first stop of the day
Dantes View, in Death Valley.
We were very lucky, on the way up the mountain we saw
a Big Horn Sheep. I have never seen one, Neither had Rosie.
We were Stoked. Pretty Cool Site.
We got ot the top of the mountain and it was pretty cold,

I had breakfast after that and gambled on the

The next stop was Zabriski Point. It was a bit warmer and
I tried my hand at
a panarama shot of the point.
Next is Me standing next to the Death Valley Historic Marker.
Next is Rhyolite, the first of 2 ghost towns we encountered.
I have been to Rhyolite before but am always fascinated by

including purple, blue, green and agua.
The places there were the jail, the bank, the cemetary and
Canyon and LeadField Ghost Town:
After Rhyolite ghost town, we headed down into Titus Canyon.
Titus Canyon is a wash with very high walls and narrow passages.
This was an Awesome sight!
We Skirted cliff walls and canyons, and ran into a ghost town
deep in the canyon called Leadfield.
Leadfield is an old mining town and there were mines still
The last part of this section is the valley floor as we dropped
back into Death Valley.
