Staged outside of Independence (near Lone Pine) on Mazourka Canyon Road. Heading for the Betty Jumbo Mine in the Inyo Mountains. First part of the ride was smooth. That's my '03 KLX 400. The highest point in the 48 states is in the background, Mt. Whitney, 14,494 ft. The road up ot the mine. Looking back at the road in, note the long drop off... At the mine... The next day we drove to Panamint Valley, it's the first valley west of Death Valley. We rode to some mines in the Panamint Mountains. They are called that because if you were panning gold you would want to Pan-a-Mint! Note the cable up to the mine... That's my buddy Fred with his 650 Husaberg. That's me and that's all!
