The Titus Canyon drive is a 26-mile, one-way drive down a gravel road. The last eight miles drop 4,000 feet through Titus Canyon. Only recommended for high-clearance vehicles.
Mary and I dropped the camper and took about 3 hours to make the trip. Nothing to difficult, but we were distracted by mines and another ghost town, Leadville, California.
First, we drove by the sand dunes. Like Sand Springs, Nevada, the prevailing winds have deposited the sand is a large dune.
Then through some low spots of Death Valley.
We crossed into Nevada and then back into California and Death Valley on Titus Canyon Road.
Do you see that thin line on the far wall between the two dark spots? That is the road that we needed to climb!
This is looking back on where we came from.
We then headed on down the highway to the lowest spot in the Northern Hemisphere.
