1318-Sierras – Death Calley, CA

We travelled the north end of Death Valley and headed up and over several valleys and around  contain ranges. We went from below sea level to over 7,500 feet crossing the last range heading towards the eastern side Sierras along Route 395. With Mt. Whitney, we left the final high desert and dropped into the long ride south hoping to return soon.
