With lots of help from Grandpa, the girls and I loaded up and headed out for a special trip to the desert, just him and us. We hadn't been to Panamint Valley since spring of 2005.E's memories of that trip were spotty. V's were QUITE limited, so it was certainly time. And with summer weather approaching, the time to visit in relative comfort was drawing to a close.
We had fantastic luck with weather. Not too hot for hiking, beautiful evenings, one cool night before the rest began heating up. We enjoyed good company with Dad's Panamint Charlie friends, good food and a relaxing pace. Sought out an abandoned old mine and related milling facility, hiked to a waterfall (in the desert? YES!), visited another oasis, caught frogs and a 4-foot-long snake (yes, I did), relaxed in camp, shared good company.
