This last weekend a few friends and I decided to throw the camping gear in our three jeeps and head to Death Valley for a little exploring of some mines and ghost towns. We had a great time with some great laughs and a couple pucker moments too! We started out heading out to Ibex mine were we set up camp Friday night. Our goal was to hit Saratoga Springs Saturday morning and continue up to Ashford Mills then on to Mengel Pass and setting up camp Saturday night at Barker Ranch, were they caught Charles Manson. Sunday we would continue on to the town of Ballarat then finally hit pavement and circle the pavement through Death Valley via Stovepipe Wells and Furnace Creek.
