Titus Canyon, Death Valley 12-28-2013

For anyone interested in Joining along, let's Meet up at the McDonald's at 8480 Farm Rd, Las Vegas, NV 98131, the corner of Farm and Durango on the Northwest part of town. Meetup prior to 8:00am for an 8:00am departure. The ride to Beatty is right at 100 miles from that point. We will pass thru Beatty and stop at the Subway / Gas Station to top off and grab a sandwich for anyone that needs to before we head back south towards the trail head. The trail starts about 5-6 miles south of Beatty right off the 374. The guide that I have rates this as an easy trail and has several points of interest for site seeing. Approximately 2-3 Hours of Trail Time depending on the length of the stops. We will pass thru the Leadfield Mine area before we hit the Titus Canyon Area. It does indicate that there may be Snow in the Winter but I have no idea if there is at this point yet. Once we get thru the canyon there are several ways to leave, we can head to Furnace Creek or we can travel just a little farther north and see Scotty's Castle. We can decide as a group what everyone wants to do at that point.

Joe, that would put us at the Subway / Gas stop at around 9:30, if you want to get a head start on us. Later in the week let me know that you are good to go so we know to expect you in Beatty.

As far as timing goes, this will be a long day, I would imagine 10 hours or maybe even a little more depending on which way we decide to return.

Look forward to seeing everyone.

FYI, Looks like there is another group of Jeeps (R-Jeeps) a semi-private side group off of Vegas Valley and Desert Wranglers will be meeting at the McDonald's at 8:00am Saturday as well. They are going over Wheelers Pass.

Thanks to you as well. When you and the better half plan on taking a day trip up to just visit the Castle, let us know we want to go back up there and take the tour as well.
