    Here are some pictures of my Death Valley trip. I went to go visit the Saline Valley Warm Springs. I took hwy 168 and exited a snowy 40 mile dirt road. I didn't realize how snowy it can get here at the higher elevations.




    Overall it was a good trip. My stock tacoma did very well in the snow. I might be upgrading the shocks since they are almost 10 years old now.

    Yeah that is where I was heading too. :)

    Lots of people where there to my surprise. Took me 4 hours off-roading to get there. Cool stop.

    Lots of nudist people there. It was interesting.

    Didn't really feel comfortable taking pics. Most people were old and not worth taking pics of. Some were younger and some were to young, 16ish i think. I waited till room opened up in the pools before I jumped in.

    Here is a site with some pics of the hot springs.

    Nice pics, man! We got about a foot of the white stuff the past 36 hours. Hoping to go out tomorrow and try out the "new" truck in the snow for the first time!

    I don't see any pics. :(
    Did you take Waucoba/Saline Valley Road? What were the conditions of the road and the temps in and out of the pools?

    Hopefully heading somewhere day after tomorrow.
