Guess you didn't get to see the 20 mule team borax wagon?
I hope that if y'all ever get the itch to explore a national park outside of Big Bend (I know, I know, that sounds like cheating on your spouse ) that you consider Death Valley. It's desert, so you'll probably like it. And it has a lot of very unique features (salt flats, dry lake beds, dune fields, 2 mile elevation extremes).
I remember the TV advertisements from many years ago. I had to look up why they used to advertise it commercially. http://www.dialcorp.com/index.cfm?page_id=56The wagons were apparently very well designed and flawlessly operated especially considering the harsh conditions.http://www.scvhistory.com/scvhistory/borax-20muleteam.htmAgain, great photos!

Those are nice, TJ, and I know you had a good time. I'm always seeing pictures of Mono Lake from out there. Didn't get to go there?And don't get distracted by that "California stuff" while you've still got most of Big Bend to shoot
We love Death Valley almost as much as BIBE. Been there on a few different occassions. Got lots of interesting stories from there. Like BIBE, getting on the outback roads is a real blast. Tea Kettle Junction and the Racetrack were some of the most interesting. Wind at Ubehebie Crater almost knocked us down trying to walk. And just like BIBE, it isn't that crowded in the summer Robert
I have never been, but always wanted to go....this really wets my whistle.....I'm sure BIBE won't mind a mistress
TJ -- your shots are truly stunning!
