Planned Trip : Death Valley - March 19-27, 2010




THIS IS A JEEP ONLY EVENT LIMITED TO MEMBERS OF THE JEEP EXPEDITIONS GROUP !

Scheduled for March 19-27, 2010.     For 1 week or less if you can't do the whole week

Our second trip to Death Valley by popular demand!   This is a GREAT trip........PERIOD!

Death Valley : A Land of Extremes ! A perfect trip to follow up on the heels of our annual Devils Highway trip.

Hottest, Driest, Lowest: A superlative desert of streaming sand dunes, snow-capped mountains, multicolored rock layers, water-fluted canyons and three million acres of stone wilderness. Home to the Timbisha Shoshone and to plants and animals unique to the harshest deserts. A place of legend and a place of trial. Death Valley.

At the height of the California Goldrush a group of pioneers decided, against the warning of their wagon master, to take a "shortcut" across the unknown deserts of the West. This fatal misjudgement would give us one of our greatest stories of trial and heroism, and it would give us the name Death Valley.

All trails will be suitable for stock Jeeps, well pretty much suitable.
